I strive to keep things positive. I strive to find solutions to problems rather than carping about the state of things. In the Lift community I'm pretty dogmatic about keeping the level of discourse positive.

It turns out there's a good reason to keep things positive. Listening to complaints turns your brain to mush, literally.

So, let's keep it positive. Let's look for solutions. Yes, the the past can be a guide to help us make good decisions or predict the behavior of others. But we can use these guides to make good choices about the future. Let's focus on solutions and working with folks who can help us do better at whatever we choose to do.
