Luck by Chance, Perfomance & Position.!!

I know its been a long time since I have posted anything here. Most of my time has been eaten up in my office work or other personal issues. 7 months into work, it makes you aware that college is way more fun than your stereo typical office. To the people who follow my blog, I have not abandoned the world of blogging, but taken to the world of micro blogging of late. This my Twitter profile http://twitter.com/gkmaestro for you to follow. Now two things which I passed through recently which I feel are fact of corporate life. Lets start with two stories which recently came across

Luck matters ;-)


With a pile of 300 resumes on his desk and a need to pick someone quickly, my boss told me to make calls on the bottom 50 and toss the rest. "Throw away 250 resumes?" I asked, shocked.
"What if the best candidates are in there?"


"You have a point," he said. "But then again, I don't need people with bad luck here."
