Chuan and Jing joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. Both worked very hard.

After several years, the boss promoted Jing to sales executive but Chuan remained a sales rep. One day Chuan could not take it anymore, tender resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.

The boss knew that Chuan worked very hard for the years, but in order to help Chuan realize the difference between him and Jing, the boss asked Chuan to do the following. Go and find out anyone selling water melon in the market? Chuan returned and said yes. The boss asked how much per kg? Chuan went back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss the $12 per kg.

Boss told Chuan, I will ask Jing the same question? Jing went, returned and said, boss, only one person selling water melon. $12 per kg, $100 for 10 kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are fresh and red, good quality.

Chuan was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Jing. He decided not to resign but to learn from Jing.

My dear friends, a more successful person is more observant, think more and understand in depth. For the same matter, a more successful person sees several years ahead, while you see only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365 times, how could you win?

Think! how far have you seen ahead in your life? How thoughtful in depth are you?

There was a man working very hard, in the hot sun, digging a ditch. When a Friend happened to walk by and see the man digging in the ditch under the hot sun.

The man walked up to him and asked, “Why is it that you work out here under a blistering sun, using a shovel and sweating over dirt while your boss sits over there in an office, in the air conditioning and probably has his feet propped up on his desk?” 

“I don’t know,” answered the man that had been digging in e ditch all morning. “I’ll go and ask him.” He huffed. He crawled out from the hole he was in and marched over to the bosses office and went in.

The boss, sure enough was sitting in the comfort of an air conditioned office and his feet were propped up on his desk. “Boss, I have a question. Why is it I am out in the hot sun, digging a ditch while you sit in the air conditioned office?” The man bellowed.

“Simple,” the boss answered. “Intelligence.”

“Intelligence?” The man mumbled. “I don’t understand!”

“See that hammer?” The boss pointed to a hammer sitting on a shelf. “Pick it up and bring it over here.” The man did as his boss asked. “Now,” the boss started, “Hit my hand.” The boss set his hand on the desk.

The man, now holding the hammer looked confused. He thought a moment then raised the hammer and swung it toward his bosses hand that rest on the desk. The hammer came down and the boss pulled his hand back just before the hammer hit the desk. The boss sit back in his chair and said, “That is intelligence.”

The worker laid the hammer down and left the office. He went back into the hot sun and walked over to the hole he had been digging. The Friend walked up and quickly asked, “Well, what did he say?”

“The boss said that the difference between me and him is intelligence.” The worker stated.

“What? That’s all?” The Friend huffed. “Intelligence?”

“Well,” started the worker. “See that shovel?” The worker pointed at the shovel. “Pick it up.” The Friend picked up the shovel. “Now, hit my hand.” The worker put his hand over his face.
