Optimism Increases Productivity

How am I going to get through all this work?

I don't know what will happen if I fail?

What happens if we don't meet the sales budget?

I hope that I don't get sick!

If this is a familiar train of thought then you are in trouble!

Pessimism has been found to not only increase stress, but also increases incidence of illness & absenteeism, tiredness, slower recovery from surgery, low self esteem, and causes the under use of abilities.

You simply cannot afford to 'put up' with a bad mood, having a miserable day, or negative colleagues.

Pessimism will drain both your productivity and quality of life.
