There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

Some Hamlet there for a fucking wise and highbrow start to the week.

I’m not sure if it’s right mind you. SURE our perception is everything, and being internally resilient and being able to make the best of things is good etc, but there are some situations which are a bit TOO fucked up and should be sorted out ASAFP.

So here’s the Good Fucking Idea rule of thumb:

  • Take a holiday. If it’s still fucked by the time you get back, get out of whatever situation you’re in.
  • If you can’t take a holiday, give it 3 months and apply the same rules.
  • And if you realise you’re just a grumpy mofo who sees the bad in everything, work out how to use that. If you see the problems more clearly than others, you’ll almost certainly be in a better position to see the solutions.

Make some good shit happen – it’s fucking rewarding.
