Turning crisis into opportunity

I think there are some people who believe that having a positive outlook right now is either:

  1. Crazy
  2. Stupid
  3. Completely unrealistic

I continue to have a positive outlook. For the record, that doesn't mean I believe that things are going to turn around tomorrow and the world will be handed to me on a silver platter.

My positive outlook is that I can continue to influence my future by taking action in the present. Today. Now.

Here's a short article on Jim Collins, of Built to Last and Good to Great fame: http://money.cnn.com/2009/01/15/news/companies/Jim_Collins_Crisis.fortune/index.htm

Are you waiting on the mountain, or making a decision to either go for the summit or retreat to climb again later?

It's up to you.
