Serendipity And Discovery

There is an old Persian fairy tale about the Princes of Serendip; three men who were on a mission but always found things they were not looking for. They discovered them by good fortune. Today we are often so stressed for time and so focused that we develop "tunnel vision" and only see things we are tuned into and miss everything else. You don't always know what you are looking for; so it is best to keep your eyes open and stay attuned to new ideas.
