Sunday morning at a small, yet busy crockery store
Feb 8, 2019
A stout lady, of age around 40, bought crockery for Rs.1300. The store owner who was handling multiple customers handed her the items and asked for money.
She created a scene shouting “I just now gave you Rs.2000. Give me back Rs.700.”
Though no one was sure about that, some of the customers suggested checking whether he has any Rs.2000 note. He genuinely said that he got so many Rs.2000 notes since morning. After 5 min of chaos, he decided to get rid of her and gave her Rs.700.
Once she left, a concerned old man asked him why he did that.
He said, “Sir, I don’t want to spoil my whole day because of this one incident. I still don’t remember whether she gave me the money, but, I’ll take this as a lesson.”
He could have got angry and fought back with the lady. But, he chose not to be affected by it and learn from it.
The story of a man, his son, and their donkey.
A popular fable that has been passed down through generations. I very much relate to this story.
The secret is to work less as individuals and more as a team.
Teamwork and collaboration can lead to greater success and productivity than individual efforts. "The secret is to work less as individuals and more as a team. As a coach, I play not my eleven best, but my best eleven." says Knute Rockne.

This challenge was one that every parent has likely experienced, and I was no exception. Nevertheless, I was able to overcome it with this.
