An old story, but worth recalling !! :-)

A man once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby.

Surprised, he asked the sculptor, "Do you need two statues of
the same idol?"

"No," said the sculptor without looking up, "We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage."

The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage. "Where is the damage?" he asked. "There is a scratch on the nose of the idol." said the sculptor, still busy with his work.

"Where are you going to install the idol?" The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.

"If the idol is that far, who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?" the gentleman asked.

The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, "I will know it."

The desire to excel is exclusive of the fact whether someone else appreciates it or not. "Excellence" is a drive from inside, not outside.

Excellence is not for someone else to notice but for your own
satisfaction and excellence.

Hi Peer Mohammad,
Thanx for the beautiful story.
Your story inspired me to share mine. Here it goes:
A man lying on his deathbed promised God that if he survived he would sell his palatial house and give away the money to the poor. Miraculously, the sick man began to recover and eventually got well. He remembered his promise but could not bring himself to part with his house. So he thought of a trick. He advertised to sell his house for only a token sum of one silver coin on the condition that anyone who bought the house would also buy his dog for a million dollars. Very soon, he found a buyer. He sold the house, put the million dollars in his pocket and gave the silver coin to charity.
Friends how often we keep fooling ourselves when nobody is watching us.
The real test of honesty is carried out in the face of temptation.


thanz a lot goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddddddddddddddd one could u plz assist me with some motivational clips regards jarul
At the most for an heartened sampling like most ahead in living that implanted in the life of an stranger that once one pierce his skill out into an 20 feet high heritage workshop designed out for this person reclaimed that gifted samplings you cant keep away and always running after all the day alike are always your driving force. You can always excel wherever you are and do not have assume your stages if you have carved out learnings at this delightful work within your insight ahead that the stranger was sculptors own son. The sculptor was being baffled with questions and he proved a moral in time.

"You should always try with the will of excellence you make your making of a masterpiece that stand yourself in lifetime and more you practice you could spot stages of giving out the sketch within the meaning towards your own distinctions. A drive created within your own passion steaming yourself
towards this excellence makes you out unique positioned wherever you are."

:idea: Thanks a lot. Keep up your good work. Keep in touch.

Dea Abhishek,
the message of the story is misunderstood by story is not about optimization this is about self-realization the message behind the story is give full effort with quality consciousness and be alert on finishing.

there is clear merit in views on both sides. if i be in business of selling idols i would rather have customer perception and cost effectiveness as key drivers. then i should sell the first idol and not start working on second unless i have repeat order.
but if i be working for myself then i am customer and answer "i will know" clearly brings that out. NO COST OR EFFORT IS HIGH FOR SELF SATISFACTION
