We recently had a management retreat . One of the surveys we did amongst ourselves, prior to it , was to answer whether we thought as an individual ,the glass was half full               (optimist) or half empty (pessimist) . We then had to classify the other attendees . The results were very interesting and illuminating . Some quotes below were used in discussions

 

If you want a interesting time or a quiet time, do this exercise with your spouse or partner ( good luck )

 

Optimist --- sees opportunity in every difficulty

Pessimist -- sees difficulty in every opportunity

Winston Churchill

 

Quotes from the Lewis Carroll " Through the looking Glass "

Who are you ?

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."

I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then. "
