Knowing Where To Hammer

May 2, 2009

My good friend, Kirk Weisler, shared this thought this week.  A man was suffering a persistent problem with his house. The floor squeaked. No matter what he tried, nothing worked. Finally, he called a carpenter who friends said was a true craftsmen. The craftsmen walked into the room, and heard the squeak. He set down his toolbox, pulled out a hammer and nail, and pounded the nail into the floor with three blows.

 The squeak was gone forever. The carpenter pulled out an invoice, on which he wrote the total of $45. Above the total were two line items:

 Hammering , $2
Knowing where to hammer, $43

 Don’t short sell your expertise and knowledge.  Charge for knowing where to hammer! 

 The purpose of our lives is to give birth
to the best which is within us.
