Perspective helps

I was in a meeting one day, listening to all the problems resulting from the sudden growth of a business. As the conversation continued, many of the comments and observations became quite negative. You would have thought the company was having a bad year. During a pause in the discussion, I mentioned that in my experience, whether you are doing really well or performing poorly, there are always problems. I shared that I have decided it is a lot better to deal with problems during the good times. This seemed to change the mood of the team for the better. Do you keep a pulse on the perspectives of your team?
