Excellence!!!


Excellence!!!

 

A German once visited a temple under construction In India where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God.

 

Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby.


Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you need two statues of the same idol?”

 

“No,” said the sculptor without looking up, “We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage.”

 

The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage.

 

“Where is the damage?” he asked.

 

“There is a scratch on the nose of the idol.” said the sculptor, still busy with his work.

 

“Where are you going to install the idol?”

The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.

 

“If the idol is that far, who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?” the gentleman asked.

 

The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, “I will know it.”


The desire to excel is exclusive of the fact whether someone else appreciates it or not.


“Excellence” is a drive from inside, not outside.

 

Excellence is not for someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction and efficiency…

Woodcutter 2008 !!!


One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a river,his axe fell into the river.

When he cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, “Why are you crying?”

The woodcutter replied that his axe has fallen into water, and he needed the axe to make his living.

The Lord went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe.

“Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

The woodcutter replied, “No.”

The Lord again went down and came up with a silver axe.

“Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

Again, the woodcutter replied, “No.”

The Lord went down again and came up with an iron axe.

“Is this your axe?” the Lord asked.

The woodcutter replied, “Yes.”

The Lord was pleased with the man’s honesty and gave him all three axes to keep, and the woodcutter went home happy.

Some time later the woodcutter was walking with his wife along the riverbank, and his wife fell into the river.

When he cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked him, “Why are you crying?”

“Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the water!”

I hope I need not explain what will happen after this…..
