What's better than...?

Yesterday, commencement exercises were held at the University of the Philippines, my alma mater. I wasn't there two years ago when Butch Jimenez was the commencement speaker, but just about everyone in the Philippines read or heard about what he said. Two years later, what he said is still very true:

What's better than focusing on the negative?
Focus on the positive.

What's better than working hard?
It's working smart.

What's better than dreaming?

What's better than doing something for yourself?
Doing something for your country.

What's better than a vision?
A cause.

--"What's better than...?" (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 31 May 2003)
