Optimism: "A tendency to expect the best possible outcome or dwell on the most hopeful aspects of a situation"
Realism: "Concern for fact or reality and rejection of the impractical and visionary"
There you go, in a nutshell, the difference in me and my husband, Jason. I tend to make decisions fairly easy and he sees all the roadblocks. I was reminded tonight visiting a client of mine. She actually used the words, realistic, describing herself, and of course, he the optimistic side.
I told my client, it is easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission! oh yes Jason, I just voiced that on my blog!
