Not where I thought you were going with this based on the title. I'd love to hear your thoughts on how chance (luck) and choices impacted your career. Many people make bad choices routinely and we see that daily. However, I've also known people who made good choices but still suffered bad consequences (luck?). For me personally, I've had it go both ways--bad choices that turned out well; good choices that turned out badly. Of course I want to take credit for my successes and credit them to my wisdom and hard work while the bad outcomes are just because of bad luck. Self-serving and not helpful. Any suggestions for better self-analysis?
