Optimism is the new Courage – 5 survival tips

Today I stumbled upon a great piece on how to cope with the economical crisis. I totally agree with Diego's survival tips – they speak for themselves:

  1. Optimism grounded in reality is the key. Understand the verities and take realistic risks. Without optimism and risk-taking, there is no hope of designing a recovery.
  2. Plan and reduce the secondary risks so you can make the big ones. Do that extra research, that fifth prototype.
  3. Save your cash for the important stuff. Surviving is “expensive” in this environment. Cash is lifeblood.
  4. Landing determines prosperity. After survival comes—-what? Landing your career, company, nation in a position to do well in the future. Watch that landing while you’re surviving.
  5. Dress for success. Put optimistic “clothing” on yourself and your brand (often the same thing but not always). Look good, even if you’re quaking.
