WOODCUTTER - Sharpen Your Axe To Be More Productive

Posted by - Akarsh Thakur

Once Upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job from a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was really good and so were the working conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.

His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work.

The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”

Very motivated for the boss’ words, the woodcutter tried her harder next day, but he could bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but only could bring 10 trees. Day after day he was brining less and less trees.

“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.

“When was the last time you sharpened you axe? The boss asked.

“Sharpen ? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”

MORALE:

WORK SMARTER THAN HARDER. TAKE BEST CARE OF YOUR RESOURCES THAT HELP YOU ACHIEVE THE SUCCESS.
