A friend recently mentioned to me that her mindset was to "start with yes".
Not in a yes-man-I-can't-say-no-ever sort of way. But in the sense of, when someone brings to you a problem or task, your first thought is: How can I help them with this? How can I make this happen? How can I find a solution?
And I thought it was a nice little idea. Because we're all in this world together, and the best thing we can do is look out for each other and try to make every day a little bit brighter.
