I think you don't get anywhere by not caring about where you're going. Just going with the flow it seems is a fallacy perpetuated by optimists that probably find themselves always stuck in a rut. Now I'm not saying that being an optimist is a bad thing. But I do question what people that are always cheery but never seem to get anywhere are doing to make their worlds better. Perhaps they find themselves in such a comfortable state that their optimism is actually just an invitation to join them in their pool of mediocrity?
