HARD WORK + SMART WORK = ACHIEVEMENT.
YOUR TAKE ON- HARD OR SMART WORK!!
Work very hard to earn good money and become a CEO of a world -class company- Is that true- No!! Not necessarily!!
We all work very hard from 9 am to 9 pm (12 to 14 hours) a day. Are we really earning good money to fulfill all dreams of our life? Perhaps, no!! So hardwork alone may not be enough to realize your dreams in life.
IT IS SMART WORK ALONG WITH HARD WORK THAT PAYS YOU GOOD MONEY. I WILL EXPLAIN THIS WITH A TRUE STORY IN MY VILLAGE.
There was a wood cutter,working in a forest for his employer(normally called Seth in villages).He used to work very hard and cut trees from morning to evening(12hrs).This wood cutter would cut 5 small trees in a day and take 30 minute’s break for lunch.
There was another wood cutter,also working in the same forest for the same employer(seth).He was equally hard working but not as hard working as the first wood cutter.The second wood cutter use to cut trees only for 8 hrs and use to take 5 minute’s break after every one hour.So practically,this wood cutter was working only for 7 hrs.
The first wood cutter did not like this but he use to keep silence.When these both wood cutter went to their employer on the first day of the month to take their salary-employer gave Rs 1,000($16) to the first wood cutter and rs 2,000($32) to the second wood cutter.The first wood cutter did not like this discrimination and he told his employer upfront that,while he worked for him for 12 hrs,the second wood cutter worked only for 8 hrs.He also told seth that he only took 30 mnt break,while the second wood cutter used to rest every 5 mnt an hour.Seth kept listening to the first wood cutter patiently.He then told the first wood cutter-do you really want to know that why i paid Rs 1.000($16) to you and Rs 2,000($32) to the second wood cutter? The first wood cutter said,’YES’! I want to know the reason.
Seth told him-you give me 5 trees wood in 12 frs,while he gives 10 trees in 8 hrs.I HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH BOTH OF YOU FOR 5 TREES EVERY DAY AND NOT WORKING FOR 12hrs OR 8 hrs.
Would you like to know how your friend gave me 10 trees in Just 8 hrs? Yes,please tell me,sir,said the first wood cutter.The seth replied, when your friend was taking break for 5 mnt every hour,he was then actually sharpening the edge of the weapon(Kuladhi-as they call in village) and this gave him better ‘PRODUCTIVITY’ for cutting the trees
MY MESSAGE TO YOU
Hours of hard work that you put in a job or business or for that matter in any other activity is not that important.
