IF ONE'S HALF-FULL AND ONE'S HALF-EMPTY, WHAT ARE YOU LEFT WITH?

Chago, Grand Master, and Saia
Sitting in their huddle tonight at karate, their Grand Master tells them a story about optimism versus pessimism, and how sometimes it's okay to be one, and sometimes it's better to be the other.

To better explain his point, he naturally takes a full glass of water sitting on the table and drinks half.  And you know how this goes.

He asks the class, "Who thinks this glass is half full?"

90% of the class raises their hands, Saia included.

Then, of course, he asks, "And who thinks the glass is now half empty?"

Chago's hand shoots straight up into the air without skipping a beat.

And suddenly...I'm awash in the a-ha moment of it all.
