A Psychological Recession
Following our last post about a lack of focus in the workplace, I found an insightful article written by Geoff Colvin of Fortune magazine. Entitled, "Recession... Or Not?" he cites psychologist Judith M. Bardwick and her thoughts about why people seem so intent that a recession exists when so many facts say otherwise. Colvin brilliantly sums up much of her comments with, "If I am afraid that my sky MAY be falling, then the sky itself IS falling."
