A pessimistic strategy has actually been proven to work and is supported by research! Daniel Pink touched on it in his latest book, To Sell is Human. In it he highlights the work of Wellesley College’s Julie Norem and the concept of “defensive pessimism”.

As a realistic optimistic, philosophically speaking, and pessimistic about today's business culture, I got curious about this book. It could fit my defense business ideas that will be described on my new site, EGO Dojo. The following quote from the article, is pro-active:

"Defensive pessimism encompassed an entire process by which negative thinking transformed anxiety into action."

I certainly feel there is a place for defensive pessimism in a business context. My biggest take is to understand that it's not just about identifying negative events that could happen, but also designing tactics to deploy.
