Story: The Officer's inspection :)


A  municipality officer stopped at corps fields in Texas , and talked with an old farmer. He told the farmer, "I  need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown  drugs."  The farmer said, "Okay  , but don't go in that field over there.....", as he pointed  out the location.

The municipality officer  verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of  the Federal Government with me !" Reaching into his rear pants  pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the  farmer.  "See this badge?!  This  badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish. on any land  !!  No questions asked or  answers given!!  Have I made myself clear......do you  understand ?!!"
The farmer  nodded politely, apologized, and went about his  chores.

A short time later, the old farmer heard  loud screams, looked up, and saw the municipality officer running for his  life, being chased by the farmer's BIG BULL. With every step the bull was gaining  ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough  get gored before he reached safety.  The officer was clearly  terrified.  The farmer threw down his  tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his  lungs.....                 

"Your badge, show  him your BADGE !!! 

Moral:
1-     Dont show arrogance while using your authority. Use it with logic and common sense.
2-    Let the other person speak if he wants to say something. It clarifies doubts & confusions.

Story: The Dog in the Well


In old times, there was a village having only one well for drinking water. One day a dog fell down in the well and died. The water became filthy and undrinkable.  The worried villagers went to the old wise man for advice. They were told to take 100 buckets of water from the well so that clean water come to the surface of the well. The villagers took 100 buckets but water status was same. They went to the wise man again. He suggested to take another 100 buckets. The villagers did the same but to no avail. They villagers tried third time to take another 100 buckets as per the advice from the wise man but water was still impure. The wise said, How come the whole well is polluted even removing this much considerable amount of water. Did you remove the dog body prior to taking 300 buckets of water? The villagers said, "no sir, you only advised us to take water out, not the dog body !!!"

Reflection:

Several times in life we try to resolve our problems without considering the root cause of the problems. We believe that we are resolving the problem whereas in actual we are working on the side effects of problem not the problem itself. We don't see the big picture to understand the root of the issue.  We take advice from our well wishers but do not use our brain to think logically to analyze the advice and then decideinstead, we start acting blindly on the solutions suggested by others.

10 Signs Someone Is Smarter Than You


Unless you think you're the smartest, who doesn't want to be smarter? Of course I want to be smarter too, so I try to find out who's the real smart guy that maybe I can learn from. James Gardner has got me an answer on Quoraabout whether someone's smart or not.

Here are the signs of smart people:

  1. They don't talk as much as you do, because they know they got smart by listening.
  2. They know lots of things other than what they're specialised in. Theirs is the gift of a broad mind, constantly fed with the stimulant of being interested in what everyone else is doing.
  3. They juggle home, work and personal interests with dexterity and never fall back on the tired old refrain about "work life balance". And when they're juggling, they somehow manage to seem 100% engaged with what they're doing, on all fronts simultaneously, even though you know they're taking appropriate steps behind the scenes to make sure their lives are perfectly, serenely balanced.
  4. They probably do social media. Not always, but probably. It is not only another chance to listen, but one they use to ensure they can feed their brains with things they otherwise won't have come across.
  5. Even when things go very badly wrong, they'll be smiling. Smart people never get ruffled because their smart brains present them with alternatives faster than the bad stuff can happen.
  6. They know they are usually the smartest person in the room, but they don't spend their time dwelling on that. Instead, they take it as a personal challenge to see if they can make everyone else the smartest person in the room too.
  7. If they are managers, they will make every effort to get people smarter, more connected and more popular than them in their teams. They're not threatened because they know that smartness is synergistic. They also make sure that their smart people get to look smarter than them for the same reason.
  8. They have hidden skills that never get rolled out until they're needed. They don't have any need to show their full capabilities for reasons of proving they're better than others.
  9. They may or may not have expensive educations. You'd never know just by being with them unless you had their CV in front of you.
  10. They never, ever, under any circumstances, make you look stupid, even though it would be easy to do so. They've learned through bitter experience that the only thing that happens when you make someone look bad is you look bad yourself.

Now you should know who the smart people are. If you want to be the smart one, let me give you this extra advice from Steve Jobs "Stay hungry. Stay foolish."
