What could be easier than sitting back and describing how something could be better?

“If I were in charge, I’d…”

“This thing is a mess, I can’t believe they let this happen…”

  1. Vindication is sweet.
    I know of a few people like this in my life, and sometimes, it’s the most draining experience to spend time with them. The negativity, the cynicism and the slow, suffocating feeling they bring to the table are just hard characteristics to deal with, and probably even harder to change.

    Here’s to the movers, shakers and producers who are here to keep their brave pants on and take on the hard, messy part. Just think if most people had this attitude – spread the optimism, I say!
