0229 – Impatient optimists

This is the first time I’m reading something from Melinda Gates, and I am impressed.

‘Impatient optimists’ huh? A very thought provoking term. Am I one?

I considered myself a pessimist, but not the nihilistic/fatalistic kind of pessimist. A patient pessimist maybe. Does that work?

In any case, jumping ship to the ‘impatient optimists’ category sounds like a good idea. Seeing things like the article and the TEDxChange makes it easier to do so. Maybe society is corrupting everyone. Maybe we all are inherently good after all.

Impatiently optimistic,

Pete
