As I was thinking this morning, I began with just a short view of this issue, but as you begin to empty your mind with brainstorming idea, the post took on a life of it’s own as I began to think of others. When you think of the familiar saying “The glass is either half full or half empty” describing either an optimist or a pessimist, when you pause and look at it more closely you find that there are opportunities than you originally saw:
Having read years ago about a restaurant that was having a bad “table” that no one wanted to sit at for their meal, the restaurant decided to change how their customers viewed that one table near the front door and market it specifically to attract a small demographic of their current clientele.
