A healthy attitude vs blind optimism

There’s a huge difference between having a healthy attitude and being blindly optimistic.

A healthy attitude allows a person to weather storms. Blind optimism often leaves people unprepared for when the weather turns & unable to deal with it effectively when it does.

He who buys what he does not need…

“He who buys what he does not need steals from himself.” — Swedish proverb

We are in/bordering on a global recession [1] [2] [3] [4] & the future is extremely uncertain. Unemployment is about to skyrocket [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].

Now is the time to conserve your resources for the long haul, not buy expensive toys or go further into debt because you’re bored & shopping is “therapy”. It’s not.

The ocean has receded

A tsunami survivor is on the beach. They see the ocean recede into the distance and realize what it means.

So they start alerting people to what’s coming. But rather than listen, the people ask their friends what the water receding could mean. And their friends give them all kinds of answers. And many of them are reassuring.

“It’s a hoax.” “We haven’t had a tsunami for 100 years.” “I’m sure it will be fine.”

So they do very little when they could be doing a lot.

And then the tsunami comes.
