A great word we should find more often

I was driving home and after three and half hours behind the wheel I thought of a great question: Is there a cost to serendipity?

Serendipity is a great word that I first happened upon when I attended a dinner hosted by the Real Time Club who had invited Dr Aleks Krotoski to deliver an after dinner talk.

It could be defined as an “aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident”.

But what I have come to suspect is that serendipity is not free. You do have to be out to stumble upon fortunate discoveries and ideas. More than this, these need to be remembered and followed through upon. How many times do we just forgot or let things go?
