feeling lucky?

A scientist did a study on the topic of luck, experimenting on people who claimed to be abnormally lucky or unlucky. He found some correlations to behavioural patterns which distilled down to this guide for getting lucky:

Here are Professor Wiseman's four top tips for becoming lucky:

* Listen to your gut instincts - they are normally right

* Be open to new experiences and breaking your normal routine

* Spend a few moments each day remembering things that went well

* Visualise yourself being lucky before an important meeting or telephone call. Luck is very often a self-fulfilling prophecy

I've got the first two down pat, I guess I should try the latter pair and then go buy a lottery ticket.
