The Black Swan | Seeking Wisdom: "Remember that positive Black Swans have a necessary first step: you need to be exposed to them.

Collect as many ... non-lottery tickets (those with open-ended payoffs) as you can, and, once they start paying off, do not discard them. Word hard, not in grunt work, but in chasing such opportunities and maximizing exposure to them."
