Accidentally, on Purpose

Nothing is done by accident if it’s on purpose. Nothing is done on purpose if it’s by accident. But the two sometimes intertwine. 

We all know what we want subconsciously and we chase it with limited expectations. For example, we all want to be rich but reality holds us back. We accept our current condition with the possibility that we may get lucky if we try here and there. So we may buy a lottery ticket or invest in a stock or in something new like Bitcoin.  

What comes to fruition is rarely what we fully expect but then it certainly isn’t a surprise. There are no accidents in this world but you can achieve success without thinking about it so hard. 

“Act without expectation.” — Lao Tzu 

The point is to just act and see what happens. The magic lies in the doing.
