It is easy these days to be “anti-”. You can spend your life and time on the planet defining yourself by what you are against. It’s important to know where you stand, and what you can’t stand for.

Surround yourself with people that are more “pro-” than “anti-”, though. A default “anti-” stance toward new ideas and experiences and people holds us back. We do it because of fear, deep entrenched fear, and a desire to hold on to the familiar. Being “anti-”- in work, in relationships, in life, is a habit.

Being “pro-” takes more work. It’s hard to find the good in everything. But as a principle of living, I think “be more pro- than anti-” is a good one.

Writing about creativity, books, productivity, education, particularly mathematics, music, and whatever else “catches my mind”. ~Thinking about things~
