Chance favors the prepared mind, etc.

A co-worker gave me a feng-shui calendar when I first started this new gig. Today's bit says this:
Pure luck, man-made luck and heaven luck are components of your destiny. You control your man-made luck through your thoughts, words and deeds.
Another bit of wisdom (from Mary Chapin Carpenter) tells us:
We've got two lives, one we're given and another one we make.
So my takeaway is that it is the natural course of events for people to get screwed over, but don't forget about the part you can do something about. The therapists say you need to "own your problems." So that is my bit of menschdom for today.
