"I Was Found of Them That Sought Me Not"
"I was found of them that sought me not;
I became manifest unto them that asked not of me."
American Standard Version
Searching for something is considered to be an action. Active. Sometimes aggressive. Searching for something everywhere. Relentlessly.
Sometimes the solution to a problem manifests itself when we least expect it.
There was an Italian economist, Pareto. His whole name is Vilfredo Federico Damaso Pareto. And he was not only an economist, but also an engineer, sociologist, political scientist, and philosopher.
He lived in a time when science was approached holistically. And maybe all these professions added to the discovery of the principle that made him famous and this principle is mostly used in economics.
His principle, the Pareto principle, in other words, the 80/20 rule states that 20 % of your actions produce 80 % of your results. As the old saying goes, when you start a project it would be nice to know beforehand which 20 % will yield the 80 %.
Oftentimes we search and search and search for something. To no avail.
And then, out of the blue, we find what we were looking for. In a place where we didn't expect to find it. On a day when we didn't expect to find it.
Our life is in God's hands. Anything can happen. Anytime. Give chance a chance.
