Tinashe and Andrew joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. Both worked very hard. After several years, the boss promoted Andrew to sales executive but Tinashe remained a sales rep. One day Tinashe could not take it anymore, he tendered his resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.
The boss knew that Tinashe worked very hard for years, but in order to help Tinashe realize the difference between him and Andrew, the boss tasked Tinashe to do the following. Go and find out anyone selling water melons at Mbare Musika. Tinashe returned and said yes. The boss asked how much per kg? Tinashe went back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss the $12 per kg. Boss told Tinashe, I will ask Andrew the same question. Andrew went, returned and said, boss, there is only one person selling water melons. $12 per kg, $100 for 10kg, he has an inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from Murehwa two days ago, they are fresh and red, good quality.
Tinashe was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Andrew. He decided not to resign but to learn from Andrew. My dear friends, 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 you see only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365 times, how could you win?
Think! How far have you seen ahead in your life? How thoughtful in depth are you?
