How Good Is Optimism?

An interesting post and link to a NY Times article from a Lymphoma blogger  And then another interesting read from an article on the same subject from last year.

Both of them discuss the potential and the pitfalls of too much optimistic thinking -- and also of too much pessimism. I'd suggest the old adage applies: Everything in Moderation. Blind, unfettered optimism can be as harmful as no optimism, I would guess.
