day 6: "More List Yourself"

A couple of entries from the seventh chapter of More List Yourself: Listmaking as the Way to Personal Discovery.

Chapter Seven: Sixth Sense

List the times you were in just the right place at the right time.
The time I bent down to dust/vacuum under my chest of drawers and found the miniscule (no exaggeration) pearl that had fallen off my grandmother's cameo!

Having to work Christmas Eve day in Boston and ending up finding my husband a job at one of the service calls I did.

Working in the Deans' Office at the University of Chicago's Graduate School of
Business and having one of the computing services bosses come down and offer me a job, for which I had no previous formal training. I'm still doing that same kind of job now, 12 years later.
