The case for optimism / by Evan La Ruffa

Despite all the crazy shit that’s happening in the world, most of us are really optimistic.

The majority of people we come across are looking for a proof of the brighter side, the more favorable result, the good, the positive. This is even true for those of us who present as cynical or jaded (we just don’t mention it as much).

The true upside is all the ways we can support one another’s bias toward positivity.

Little bumps to our optimism can go a really long way because they encourage others to see the silver lining. To assume it CAN be done. To try.

If tiny bumps to our optimism make real people even more inclined to favor potential, we’re sure to build more great solutions.

And we’re sure to have been a part of it.
