Positive Attitude: What it takes in the design world

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.  ~Herm Albright, quoted in Reader’s Digest, June 1995

A number of factors contribute to a happy, well-adjusted existence. We are constantly encouraged to maintain a positive attitude, but what exactly does that phrase mean? As you attempt to arrive at your own definition of a positive attitude, you can consider several factors.

    Be Hopeful About the Future

  • People exuding a positive attitude are hopeful about the future. They are confident in their abilities to achieve their goals and are excited about the possibilities of positive new experiences.

    Identify the Good In the Bad

  • Those who seek the silver lining in the cloud are prime examples of people with positive attitudes. A positive attitude means bypassing obstacles to find the good parts of a bad situation.

    A Flexible Attitude

  • A flexible, amiable attitude is a positive attitude. People who are able to adapt easily to new plans when a standing plan goes awry are those with positive attitudes.

    Willingness To Tackle Challenges

  • Where there is a readiness to meet new challenges head-on, there is a positive attitude behind it. Negative attitudes often shut down at the prospect of a new challenge or experience; positive attitudes are ready and waiting for them.

    Adopt a “Can-Do” Attitude

  • A positive attitude breeds confidence in individual abilities. It is virtually impossible to possess genuine self-confidence without a genuine positive attitude.
