    :hello: An Industrialist & His Absentminded Friend :hello:

    A Renowned Industrialist happen to advise a remedy to his friend to overcome absent mindedness.

    The friend often forget where he had left his pen.
    As a result of his absent mindedness, he had the habit of keeping cheap pens and somehow was losing all that. He often regretted for his forgetfulness.

    During a meet, the industrialist had noticed that his friend’s plight and suggested to him to buy an expensive pen for his personal use and to observe how he would stop losing it and perhaps that would result in overhaul improvement in his attention to other serious business matters .

    The friend heeding to industrialist’s advise, acquired an expensive 22 carat golden pen. .

    Few months later, industrialist and his friend met. Looking at the pen clipped to chest pocket of his friend’s shirt, the industrialist enquired about his habit of misplacing pen.

    The friend in response, told that that now-a-days he takes utmost care of the golden pen and since began using it, he had observed that there has been vast visible improvement in his functions and he is at ease with his day-to-day business activities.

    And now to the moral lesson - Many would realise and relate that this is what happens in their life situations. Whichever we value most, that is taken care of with utmost care & attention.

    • When we value our body, we pay proper attention in the food we prepare & select to eat.
    • When a bosom friend is valued high, we respect him much.
    • When we value our hard earned money, we pay special attention to the expenses and spend only for basic necessities and other unavoidable ones.
    • When our kith & kin are valued, we think deep before breaking with them our friendship or and relationship.
    • If we value our business as a great service to humanity, it would not only keep our customers and patrons loyal to our products and services, but it would eventually may enlarge our clientele.
    • If we consider our living is full of value, then we would live our life for noble causes.
    • Every human action that is carried out or executed without awareness of its future potential & value, would only result in energy expended.
    Guess the name of the Indian Industrialist referred to in this post.

    @Thyagarajan Sir,
    I don't know the name of that industrialist that you referred in your snippet. I liked your summarization on giving value to something or someone the most, makes us take care of that thing/person very well. I noted down that message from your blog. Thank you.
