Pay attention to the world around you

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I recently read an article where the CEO of a large corporation was interviewed. In the article, he advised salespeople to stay positive and to stop watching and reading the news because it is negative.

Of course, the people who have gotten wealthy from the labor of others want that labor to continue without distraction which is what got us into this mess in the first place.

Yes, there is a lot of bad news these days but it won’t go away because we ignore it. Unless you are very wealthy the bad news is impacting your life already.

This is the time to pay attention and do what we can to make the world a better place. It is time to take action. Positive thinking isn’t making a difference.

I recommend being a rebel and taking the day off from work to catch up on the news. Not cable news but actual news if you can find it. The old-school newspapers have news in them. Start there. Many are online. The big fat ones are published on Sundays and can be found in stores and in those little metal boxes around town.
