GET KNOWLEDGE – IF YOU WANT TO STAND OUT

A giant ship failed. The ship’s owner tries one expert one after another, but none of them could figure how to fix the engine. Then, they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was young. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed!

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

Construction-guy ‘What?’ the owners exclaimed. ‘He hardly did anything!’ so they wrote the man a note saying, “Please send an itemized bill.” The man sends a bill that reads:

Tapping with hammer…………………………………………..$2.00

Knowing where to tap…………………………………………………. $9998.00

Effort is important but, where to make an effort makes the whole difference!

What stands you out day in day out is KNOWLEDGE! Never stop acquiring it.
