No matter what goes wrong, there’s always something good to find in a setback. Your funding was denied. Good, we can learn to be more efficient. The mission we were planning got cancelled. Good, we have now more time to prepare. But when you go too far with a positive attitude, your team cannot see the reality of the situation.
You got your funding denied. Okay, so this is going to take a little more time than we’d thought, but at least now we can streamline our processes and become as efficient as possible. The mission we were planning got cancelled. Well, this isn’t ideal, but at least now we can rehearse some of the details and be even more prepared.
Maintain a positive outlook, but don’t ignore the trials you face. Be positive and realistic.
