one from my end........

Lessons on Life

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall.

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.

The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall.

Moral lessons:

Don't judge by one difficult season. :lol:



another from my end..............

An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to spade his potato

garden, but it was very hard work.

His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison. The old man

wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation.

Dear Son, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be

able to plant my potato garden this year.

I hate to miss doing the garden, because your mother always loved

planting time. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden

plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you

would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.


Love, Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram:

"For Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the garden!! That's where I

buried the GUNS!"

At 4a.m.

The next morning,

A dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the

entire garden without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what

happen ed, and asked him what to do next. His son's reply was: "Go

ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It's the best I could do for you

from here."

- Moral of the Story




guys tell me what do u guys to say about this one...............



Plz read thz also...............itz also worth reading...........

Temper and The importance of controlling it

There once was a little boy who had a bad

temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails

and told him that every time he lost his

temper, he must hammer a nail into the back

of the fence. The first day the boy had

driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next

few weeks, as he learned to control his

anger, the number of nails hammered daily

gradually dwindled down. He discovered

it was easier to hold his temper than to

drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't

lose his temper at all. He told his father

about it and the father suggested that the

boy now pull out one nail for each day that

he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally

able to tell his father that all the nails

were gone. The father took his son by the

hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You

have done well, my son, but look at the

holes in the fence. The fence will never be

the same. When you say things in anger,

they leave a scar just like this one. You

can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

It won't matter how many times you say I'm

sorry, the wound is still there. " A verbal

wound is as bad as a physical one.

Forgive me if i have bored a hole !

one more from my end.......... :)

A good story for all of us to follow in our careers and social life........ ...very true

Once upon a time a Washerman was bringing up two donkeys.

Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B.

Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the

other. It always tried to pull the washerman's attraction over it by

taking more load and walking fast in front of him.

Innocent Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, irrespective of

the washerman's presence. After a period of time, Washerman started

pressurising Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to

walk fast, got continuous punishment from washerman. It was crying

and told personally to Donkey-A "Dear friend, only we two are here,

why to compete with each other....we can carry equal load at normal

speed ".

That made Donkey-A all the more energetic and next day it told to

washerman that it can carry more load and even it can run fast also.

Obviously happier washerman looked at Donkey-B.., his BP raised and

he started kicking Donkey-B. Next day with smile, Donkey-A carried

more load and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for

Donkey-B and it couldn't act that way....But the washerman was

frustrated, so he harassed Donkey-B terribly, and finally it fell

down hopelessly.

Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supremo and happily started carrying

more load with great speed. But now the Load of the Donkey-B is also

being carried by Donkey-A., and still it has to run fast. For some

period it did, finally due to fatigue it got tired and started

feeling the pain. But washerman expected more from Donkey-A. It also

tried best, but couldn't cope up with his owners demand. The

Washerman got angry with Donkey-A also and started harassing to take

more load... Donkey-A was crying for long time and then tried its

best... But it couldn't meet the owner's satisfaction. Finally the

day came when due to frustration the washerman killed Donkey-A and

went for searching some other Donkeys.

Its an endless story....... ...

But the moral of the Story in Corporate and social life is......,

"Think all colleagues are same and that everyone is capable.... Always

Share the Load equally..... Don't ever act smart in front of your

Boss and never try for getting over-credit. ..

Don't feel happy when ur colleague is under pressure.. "

It doesn't matter if u r A or B, for the Boss u shall be always DONKEY

And most importantly, Never Work Hard, Work Cleverly.... . "Success is a journey not a destination"



Hi Suryakant, That was a good initiative of yours, to share these lively stories. Keep posting. cheers Rajeev.V
lets compile all such stories in the benefit of our members.............

good one career councelling..................

:D 8) :lol: :o

Put about 100 bricks in no particular order in a closed room with an open window.

Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door.

Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks, put them in the accounts department.

If they are recounting the bricks, put them in auditing.

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in engineering.

If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in planning.

If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in operation.

If they are sleeping, put them in reception (HO).

If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in information technology.

If they are sitting idle, put them in human resources.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in sales.

If they have already left for the day, put them in marketing.

If they are staring out of the window, put them in strategic planning.

And then last but not least.....

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in top management.




Again one in poetic form....gives some good insights into our corporate understanding..........

One more very much sounding and appealing story that wd teach us some lessons for our day to day life................ :)

A giant ship engine 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

young. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived,


immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top


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......................... $ 9,998.00

Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life

makes all the difference
