I was reading AOL news and it had a sidebar on the best advice given to corporate leaders. This one particularly hit me:

My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From him I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed.
Isn’t that the truth? Wanna guess what I’ll be working on this week? You’ve got it.
Have a great day today!
