We Win Either Way


We tend to see life as a series of ups and downs, of struggles and plateaus, of things that happen to us and our reactions. But what if we’re wrong? What if life, work, school, and family unfold more as we see it all than as stuff that happens to us?

That would mean that we’d do well to see life as a feel-good adventure. We would focus on what we want, being guided by the feeling of it, and feeling what it would feel like to have it. Ultimately, after all, we want to feel good.

And if we’re wrong about being wrong–if life is only about stuff that happens to us–then we’d still be okay. We’d be happy, focused, and effective in the face of all the stuff life throws at us.

We win either way.


In your corner,
