The Solutions Generator

I got this note from Jurriaan Kamp:

It’s a fair guess that you read some 25 news stories every day, or at least their headlines. That comes to some 10,000 news stories per year. Do you remember a story you read in the past year that has helped you make a better decision about your life?

Most news is not helpful to you. It interrupts your thinking. It stands in the way of creativity and the emergence of new ideas. If you want to come up with old solutions, read news. If you are looking for new solutions, don’t.

I offer you a free download of my book The Solutions Generator. This is practical guide about how to create a life that is focused on generating solutions—that’s the most fulfilling thing we can do and contribute.

PS. Many studies show that optimism is good for your health. Optimistic mothers get bigger and healthier babies. Optimists recover more quickly from disease and surgery. And they longer. You can read about the science in my book. Download it here.
