A Best of Barry: What's right, what's wrong and what's reality

Woody Allen once said that he wrote and produced movies in part because they offered him a chance to have things turn out the way he thought they should have in real life.

In movies, media and books, we all are "treated" to good versus bad. The bad congressman, the evil business tycoon, the poor victim, the inspiring rags to riches athlete, the hard-working single parent, the bad rich kid, etc.

But in our lives, reality is different. There is seldom a totally evil customer or boss or employee. Or a true victim or a completely bad or completely wonderful child.

It's complicated at times. It's not black and white, it's various shades of many colors, and yes, once in a while it is black or maybe white.

We have to face and deal with all of this and on a one-to-one basis, do our best each day, realizing that our best may not be enough. That's in our personal lives and business lives. That's why we're here on this planet. That's reality.
