food for thought...

Waduh.. nak pecah rasanya kepala mama hari ni.. start from malam tadi tidur kul 2.30 pagi.. tu pun tertidur.. sebenarnya nak tidur lambat lagi nak abihkan keje tapi imran pulak bangun nak nyusu.. last-last tertidur terus dengan notebook ngan tv ngan kipas kat family lounge terbukak sampai pagi... sampai2 opis terus pulun abihkan keje sampai tak sempat nak breakfast.. breakfast kul 12 then nak gi lunch dah kenyang so dah save time la kat situ... petang ni ada meeting lak .. nasib baik kejap je.. then sambung nak prepare for audit next monday... takut gak.. sebelum ni mana pernah kena audit ngan SIRIM... tawakkal je la...

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed?

The ship's owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. 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.

"What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!" So they wrote the old man a note saying, "Please send us an itemized bill."

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer ........................ $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap ...........................$ 9998.00

Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.
