To acknowledge the very existence of the "random box" means that we accept the significant role that luck plays in our lives and business affairs, especially in complex situations with many moving parts. In simple situations, many of our choices and actions come from the "talent box". There is a more direct 1:1 relationship between what we do and what happens. Eventually, if we are conscientious learners, we develop better judgement about what works and does not work and we take on bigger, more complex challenges. This leads more often to results we like, as we learn to hack the random box and maximize our chances of something good occurring. It's uncomfortable and scary getting blindsided, but it's not all bad. There are many good things that also come from the "random box".
