There is always something positive ...
Kind of a never give up quote, or keep thinking positive. Does not work for people only, it also works in the nature, just look at this picture for example 🙂👍 https://i.redd.it/xcveur8qqta11.jpg.
And it works in Chinese fashion as well, last Sunday the Glamorous grannies return to Beijing street ‘catwalk’ to celebrate easing of coronavirus rules by taking off face masks, see https://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/fashion-beauty/article/3097403/glamorous-grannies-return-beijing-street-catwalk-celebrate or their video at https://youtu.be/Rd3vnePi72Y. There is even an older model, a 88 year old grandma has become China's fashion icon, as you can see here, https://youtu.be/WYkvM6Q2EH8.
Never giving up and thinking positive could also be the right perspective when you implement Agile leadership in a company. Was one of the discussion points during the workshop this week. My proposal was to reduce the "ideal Agile framework cloud" with all the internal and external influence factors in a company to the much more specific "Agile playing field" that you can really influence and have under control. A much smaller starting point.
