  1. Optimism is not enough. Necessary but far from sufficient. So sweet it can’t help but be toothless: a TED Talk.

    β€œThe reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

    ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

  2. Optimists shape the future because they have an infectious positive outlook, better decision-making skills, and are action-orientated, which drives progress and creates a brighter future. In addition, they tend to have greater resilience in the face of inevitable setbacks and criticism.

  3. I wish the future would be shaped by optimists but I just can’t envision it actually happening.
