Turn on the evening news, and you’ll see another day’s catalog of
terror and trauma. Read the business page, and you’ll see which local company is downsizing. Our big-picture perspective can be shaped, or misshaped, by attention-grabbing events.
The news doesn’t cover people who had a particularly good day and return home to their happy families. The news doesn’t cover the continued existence of a healthy company.
Don’t let the negative picture of the world cloud your perspective.
