Antipatterns should be ameliorative. For that matter, patterns should be too. For that matter, so should you, at least in the way you do your job.
Ameliorate (verb): to make a situation better or more tolerable
I've been talking about antipatterns. It's not just enough for an antipattern to give a common solution, to say "Bet you did this, didn't you? D'oh!" It then needs to offer a preferred solution. This makes the document ameliorative; it helps the reader understand not just why their situation sucks, but also figure out how to make their situation better.
Any pattern should be ameliorative. It tells the reader what to do to make their situation a good one, perhaps better than it was, in any event better than it would be if they applied a less-than-best practice. If a pattern documents an approach which is not ameliorative, whatever it's documenting is not much of a pattern.
When you're doing your job, are you ameliorative? Are you making the situation better? Or worse? Perhaps you're trying to make it better but the situation fights back; that's just a bad (but common) situation. But in a reasonable situation, if you're not helping to make things better, why not? See the importance of leadership. Leaders ameliorate.
So, be ameliorative. Get out there and ameliorate.
