I was listening to a great podcast from Dr Michael Gervais on Finding Mastery and he had a great guest Dr. Katie Milkman, who’s a behavioral scientist, and wrote a book recently with her focus “that optimism comes when you have a fresh start”.
Maybe it’s from a life event, or for something you’re striving for. Maybe it comes from pain, or you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. It can come at any time, it can be from different chapters in your life. It can be after a rough quarter, a challenging month, a surprising week, and or sometimes daily focus. I like to think I have fresh starts of some sort on a daily basis.
Optimism, even if you’re not always optimistic, we all have that ability to find it. It can be that pivot point or that first timely start. I encourage you to think about that, think about the science, and be on the lookout for the opportunity.
Sometimes when you’re looking for it you find it or when you’re not looking for it.
Highly recommend the episode.
Defeating average with optimism.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
