A man walked down on a street where there's a big sign with a very big letter said ... 'BE CAREFUL, WATER HOLES RENOVATION'

He read and smile, then ... BANG !!! Hardly he had to pull out his right leg from the hole. Someone watching this happened and thought how blind that man. A few second there's another man came along, and again, he read the same sign. The 'watching man' walked, to get closed and whispered him "be careful buddy!" then the man passed the street successfully.

Maybe we thought that it's ridiculous what the 'watching man' did. He sweat himself by warning people to watch their steps whom surely read the sign. But we'll never know... it's reality, this is the world we lived. Everyone's already known right or wrong, there's a big sign ... and yes very big one! but still some of us need that kind of whispering for guiding our steps.

Education And Good Judgement

Created on 27 January 2011
There is a story about a man who sold hot dogs by the roadside. He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers. He was hard of hearing, so he never listened to the radio. His eyes were weak, so he never watched television.

But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hot dogs. His sales and profit went up. He ordered more meat and got himself a bigger and a better stove.

As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from college, joined his father. Then something strange happened. The son asked, "Dad, aren't you aware of the great recession that is coming our way?"

The father replied, "No, but tell me about it." The son said, "The international situation is terrible. The domestic is even worse. We should be prepared for the coming bad time."

The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers, and listened to the radio, he ought to know and his advice should not be taken lightly. So the next day, the father cut down his order for the meat and buns, took down the sign and was no longer enthusiastic.

Very soon, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hot dog stand. And his sales started coming down rapidly. The father said to his son, "Son, you were right. We are in the middle of a recession. I am glad you warned me ahead of time."


What is the moral of the story?

1. Many times we confuse intelligence with good judgment.

2. A person may have high intelligence but poor judgment.

3. Choose your advisers carefully and use your judgment.

4. A person can and will be successful with or without formal education if they have the 5 Cs: Character, Commitment, Conviction, Courtesy, Courage

5. The tragedy is that there are many walking encyclopedias who are living failures.
