Sharpen Your Skill
His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work.
The first day, the woodcutter brought down 18 trees. The Boss was very much impressed and said, “Congratulations keep it up!”
Very motivated by the words of the boss, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could bring down 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only could bring down 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing down less and less trees.
“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought to himself.
He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what! was going on.
“When was the last time you sharpened your Axe?” the boss asked.
“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my Axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees.
The moral of the story:
Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the axe. In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy than ever. Why is that? It is so because We forget to Upgrade our skill set and spend most of our times Working Hard.
There is an Old Proverb:
There is no need of running fast when you are in the wrong path..
Most of Us are running in the wrong path and blaming our fate for our self-created Misfortune...
