Everything has energy

Energy cannot be created or destroyed
but it happens every day

For everything you encounter, there are

exactly 2 options*

* really

+ / -

This book is very cheesy

and everything it says is true

Jon Gordon, The Energy Bus

No one is successful all on their own

Would you rather be around + or - energy?

BTW, Factual evidence on

+ energy does exist

(for you left brainers)

Shawn Achor, The Happiness Advantage

Optimistic sales people outsell their pessimistic counterparts by 56%

Positive emotions increase our peripheral line of vision

Positive individuals can think a wider array of thoughts and ideas

-- Barbara Frederickson's Broaden and Build Theory

The Point?

"you have insulted me, and I am a good citizen, and I am very real."

-- Kurt Vonnegut, November 16, 1973

"I am very real"

"People tend to assume that being an engineer/programmer means that not only must they treat their code with utmost logic and rationality, but that they should look at life in the same manner - that to be an empathetic and emotional person puts them at some sort of optimizational and productive disadvantage. All that leads to is cold, harsh discourse and criticism without considering the more abstract, but very real ways humans feel and behave."

-- "reason" on Hacker News

Everyone has

2 options: +/-

Golden Rule

Go forth and create energy
