We pay inordinate attention to the negative.

So when the service at the restaurant

is poor,

we fixate on it.

Our emotions get fired up.

At these times, we are likely to get on our phones

and write a flaming, one-star review.

Today, I invite you to flip that mentality.

Pay inordinate attention to the good.

Look for where people are doing their jobs

with consistency, regularity, dependability.

Then, spread the good word.

Let them know you appreciate it.

Take out your phone and write

a glowing review.

You may find there’s a lot more good

than you imagined.

And that’s worth getting fired up about.
