Sandra is convinced - just like she used to in her past, many of us suffer from a "global attention disorder": We solely stare at the bad things happening in the world and ignore the bright side of life. Determined to change this problem-fixed mindset, Sandra advocates a more holistic view of the world. Since as she points out, it is only if we broaden our perspectives to embrace the existing radically good that we can gain the strength, energy and inspiration necessary to tackle the remaining urgent problems of our world.
