Serendipity – Part 3


A lot of times we think of something and just by chance , you get a message related just for that.

I don’t know – how many of you have seen the movie Serendipity. If you haven’t, its a nice romantic movie about a person who believes in serendipity and the other who doesn’t but he is so much in love that he tries all means to reach out to her.

I use an android phone and on Saturday , I was thinking about deleting a lot of irrelevant photos which have been lying around and consuming memory in my phone. I have the “files” utility from Google, on my phone which I use to identify applications / files which are consuming a lot of memory. You need to know that I did not talk about deleting the photos with anyone. It was just something that was going on in my mind that I wanted to do on “some” day.

Yesterday morning when woke up and I was seeing the notifications on my phone, I saw a notification from “files” telling me that it had identified more than 12000 duplicate photos, which if I deleted, I could save about 605MB. I clicked not he notification and it actually took me to the photos where it showed me the original and the duplicates. I went through some of them randomly to check if by chance the Google algorithm could have made errors. But there were none, so I accepted the recommendations and Google cleaned up 605 MB of space for me.

Let me give you another example. You can verify this from my post yesterday. I had written about Dean Jackson’s fifty minute focus finder. however when I was writing about it, I could not locate the link to share it with you’ll.

I am on Dean Jacksons mailing list so I keep getting mail’s about his podcasts and other things that he keeps posting. Today morning when I opened my mail box, the topic of his mail was the fifty minute focus finder. For those who read my post yesterday and wanted to know what the fifty minute focus finder is, pls find the link here. I am posting it because as they say “it was meant to be” that’s why it appeared in front of me.

Now what would you call this?

For me this is pure serendepity.

Till next time then.

Carpe Diem!!!
