About EtG!

Thank you for visiting Examine the Glass!

Here you will find information that I hope is useful for personal and career growth.  It is my belief a major inhibitor of success is perspective.  Either misaligned or lack thereof.

The old adage of “Is the glass half empty or half full?” often refers to whether one is an optimist or a pessimist.  In reality, both perspectives are necessary.  Too much optimism can lead to false hopes and misguided assumptions.  Too much pessimism can lead to depression, self-destruction and complacency or inactivity.

Granted, most people in today’s society fall under the “too much pessimism” category, thus the primary focus of this site is to open people’s eyes to one simple fact.  If the glass is always half-empty, Examine the Glass!  Perhaps your glass is too large.

We will have regular blog posts, hoping to inspire and motivate.  All comments are welcome, however moderation will occur, so please no SPAM or profanity.  Keep it PG rated and we’ll all get along just fine.

Poke around the site, let me know what you think.  It is my belief that we all can learn and grown from each other and eventually forget about the Glass altogether.
