In my continued quest to make use of my normal human schedule, last night I went to the In the Company of Women book release event. I’ve read Design Sponge for years and I’m always happy to see a panel of women talking about how to be successful. Plus, I got a tote bag. Anyway, what struck me most is the notion of “just doing it”–if you want something, you have to go get it. Obviously, we know this, but it is helpful to be reminded. I was also intrigued by the notion of surrounding oneself with positive people who support you. Now, the idea of positivity is a bit of a sore spot for me because people LOVE to tell me that I’m negative. I’m not a negative person. I’m a realistic person. And there is a difference. But my interpretation of this context is the idea of surrounding yourself with friends and co-workers who are positive about you–they recognize your worth and support you. Maybe someday, I’ll find a place like this–or create one. But for now, goals.
