Real Life

March 31, 2011 | Uncategorized

Optimism gets me in trouble fairly regularly. But I haven’t been able to give up on looking for the silver lining in every cloud.

Where a hopeful outlook hurts me the most is in scheduling. When I calculate how long anything is going to take, my estimate is pretty darn accurate. Where I go wrong, over and over again, is in the naive assumption that nothing will go wrong.

Something always goes wrong. Even a rosy-glasses girl knows that much. Hence when I commit to a definite date, whether it’s to have a story done, or to get the car serviced, I double the estimated time required. And it’s still challenging to make the deadline. :ninja:

Are you and optimist or a pessimist? And how’s that choice working for you?
