"Lawson Station" (罗森站)
"Lawson Station" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Lawson Station. A cornucopia of freshly made baozi (steamed buns), tea eggs, noodles, and of course hot drinks. What started as a small dairy milk store has burst into one of the most popular convenience store chains in the world. Naturally one would question their recipe for success? I’m sure you've heard the phrase by Roman philosopher Seneca, “Luck is when opportunity meets preparation.” This is true, but I think he was only partially correct. In fact, Seneca left out a critical component: Action. With this perspective the complete formula should be, “Luck is when opportunity meets preparation plus action”. Think about it, when opportunity and preparation meet there’s actually only potential for luck to occur, but without action then nothing happens. It’s a missed opportunity. Like taking a wrong step and suddenly losing your balance. You see in the grand scheme of things it’s all a balancing act.
