Sanity will [usually|mostly] prevail

The following is excerpted from PM Tip #21 by Brad Abrams. The full post is in my opinion a must read that does not only apply to program managers, despite the title. :-)

Option one (the sulking) is toxic to the team... it not only under-minds [sic] the area in question, but the whole product.  If you are really it this camp it is time to find a new job.   

Option two (sanity will prevail) may very well seem pointless.  I mean after all these are issues where you have no control over.  However, I am firmly convinced that if enough smart people are following this path and continue to work toward that great day it is bound to happen sooner or later.   Plus, the world is a much better place with hope rather than sulking.  So even if the full vision never happens at least you had a good time working towards it.

Truer words were never spoken, on both counts....
