Optimistic Men Life Books

Jane Hutcheon

Two good books came across my desk this week.

They were "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth" by Col. Chris Hadfield and "Optimism" by Bob Brown.

Two men from very different walks of life.

(Oh how I'd love to interview them together)

There was a single, over-riding message: spend your life working at being positive in a job you are passionate about. Keep doing this day in, day out.

The books, of course go far deeper than this, but this was the ultimate take-away.

I thoroughly enjoyed how both Bob and Chris used stories from different stages of their lives, honing the processes for staying motivated, committed yet open to adjustment.  Simple mastery.
