This week’s focus point: Yesterday, the New York Times offered me eight electronic op ed columns. Every one was negative, from politicians “ignoring reality” and high speed rail being a “folly” to critique of tax credits and even why a Pope should not be canonized. Perhaps all of this is relevant and important, but it seems to me that there is a lot of good news that’s also relevant and important. When we’re besieged with harsh and negative information, we tend to lose sight of the positive and productive. Find the optimistic people and news in your life and your profession, because the default position isn’t all that exhilarating. I look at each new day as an opportunity to thrive with my head high, not as a long, slow, cautious crawl through enemy territory holding my head down.
