“Thinking of the things in my life that bring me pleasure is a peaceful and positive way to start the day — and a much better way to deal with a perceived failure than to ruminate on it. When you’re down, think of the things you have to look forward to. When you are no longer in the grip of the mishap, then you are ready to reflect on it… After reflection, the learning of the past is known, and the solution of the experience — the course of action we must take as a result — becomes clear. ”
