I heard this story this morning when I was listening to a speech by Joel Osteen.
Two lumberjacks received a large order with a tight deadline. They decided to wake up early in the morning and went in the middle of a forest. After working for several hours, the first guy decided to take a break to sharpen his axe. But the second guy said, I am too busy to sharpen my axe now, and continued working. At the end of the day, the first guy went home with twice the amount of wood.
We all know the moral of the story. But what we don't realize is, sometimes we behave like the second guy.
Study says, more than half of us don't read even a single book, from start to end, for the rest of our lives, after we graduate from high school.
Isn't that sad?
