Learn and Earn
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.
He tendered his resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value the hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.
The boss knew that Chuan worked very hard for many years, but in order to help Chuan realise the difference between him and Jing, the boss asked Chuan to do the following:
Go find out if anyone is 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 tells Chuan: “I will ask Jing the same question.”
Jing went, returned and said: ” Boss, only one person is selling water melon: $12 per kg, $100 for 10 kg.
He has an inventory of 340 melons.
On the table there are 58 melons.
Every melon weighs about 15 kg.
They were brought from the South two days ago.
They are fresh and red, good quality.
Chuan was very impressed and realised the difference between himself and Jing.
He decided not to resign but to learn from Jing.
A more successful person is more observant, thinks more and understands in depth.
For the same matter, a more successful person sees several years ahead, while others see only tomorrow.
The difference between a year and a day is 365 times.
How far have you seen ahead in your life?
How thoughtful in depth are you?
