Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant, and he got it...His salary was really good and so were the working conditions...For the reason, the woodcutter was determined to do the best.. His boss gave him the axe and showed him the area where he was to fell the trees..... The first day, the woodcutter brought 15 trees... "congratulations"..said the boss..... "carry on with your work"! Motivated by his boss..the woodcutter tried even harder the next day...but now he could only cut 10 trees.....the third day, he tried even harder and still he managed to get only 7 trees...he was getting lesser and lesser as the days passed..... he thought his strength was getting lesser and lesser as the day passed by.. he went to his boss and apologised for it.... "when was the last you sharpen your axe"....????? asked the boss... "Sharpen axe" ????? "I had no time and did not do it since long"..."I was too busy cutting down the tree" ....he replied... Most of us do the same mistake in life...we are satisfied with what we have and never sharpen our skills......we are satisfied with whatever we've learned..but good is not always good...better is expected....sharpening our skills from time to time is the key to success.... SO WHEN DID YOU LAST SHARPEN YOUR AXE ?????
