Mediocre Life and Luck factor

It was supposed to be a lazy sunday after a long week in the office. To my surprise, i chanced upon an article on lifehacker which talked about seven effective habits of mediocre life. I could relate to it as a fish takes to water. In this article, James Alutcher concludes, “Being mediocre doesn’t mean you won’t change the world. It means being honest with yourself and the people around you. And being honest at every level is really the most effective habit of all if you want to have massive success.”

All of us, once in a while say “touch-wood”, have you wondered where does it originate?. The reasoning goes something like this: “Touching (“Knocking on”) wood dates back to pagan rituals that were designed to elicit the help of benign and powerful tree gods.” . Richard Wiseman has a wonderful article about luck and the luck factor here. He concludes saying “much of the good and bad fortune we encounter is a result of our thoughts and behavior”.
