James and Paul joined a wholesale copany together just after graduation. Both worked very hard.

After several years, the boss promoted Paul to sales executive but James remained the sales rep. One day James could not take it anymore, tendered his resgnation to the boss and complained that the boss did not value hard working staff, but only those flattered him.

The boss knew that James worked very hard for many years, but in order to help him realise the different between himself and Paul, the boss asked James to do the following: Go and find out anyone selling watermelon in the market?
James returned and said he had found someone. The boss asked how much per kg? James went back to the market to ask and returned to inform the boss that the price was $2,99 per kilo

The boss told James, "I will ask Paul the same questiom". Paul went, returned and said; boss, only one person sells watermelon. It costs $2,99 per kg and or $12,00 for 15kg. He has stock of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 10kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are very fresh and red, good quality indeed.

James was very impressed and realised the different between himself and Paul. He decided not to resign but to learn from Paul.

Successful persons are more observant, thinks more and understands in depth. They see several years ahead.
