Why A Half Empty Glass Is A Good Thing
Is the glass half full or half empty?
There is no need to stress about the answer or what it means, but it is an opportunity to think differently.
Here are ten reasons why a half empty glass is a good thing.
- You have already enjoyed the first half
- You only want or need a small drink
- The glass could be very large so half a glass could be a big drink
- You have had enough to drink
- Half a glass is not equal to an empty glass
- You are saving the rest for later
- There is room for a “top up”
- You have not finished yet
- You have enough to share
- You know when to stop
We often see this cliché being used as a description of our perception, whether we have a positive or negative outlook on life. What we need to realise the answer has more than two options and these options can be positive, negative or neutral in nature. (The cliché also assumes that it is a drink, it could be the perfect measure for an ingredient in a recipe or anything we want it to be)
When a problem is presented do not just look at the linear solutions, look at the possibilities that could exist. Allow your brain to be creative and think out of the box. For all the problem scenarios that exist there are many solutions waiting to be discovered, innovation exists in how we provide the solution.
