September 13 is National Defy Superstition Day! I’m not totally sure, but I suppose that means today is the day to walk under a ladder or spill salt without expecting any adverse outcomes. Many superstitions are based on the idea that if you do X, a bad thing will happen. But then there’s another kind of superstition: if you do Y, the outcome will be good. Think: MLB players not shaving their beards during playoffs, or performing the sign of the cross before a dive.
It’s not just athletes, business people also have a ton of superstitions! From assuming the power stance before big presentations, to framing the first dollar your business made, to Lucky Catwatching over your store, to wearing the same tie/socks/undies to important meetings -- all with the hope that things will go the right way.
So, QB Community members, what are your superstitions? And, do they work?
