Sharpen your Shaw

Once upon a time a very strong wood-cutter asked for a job with a timber merchant, and he got it. The salary was really good and so were the working conditions. For that reason, the wood cutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to fell the trees. The first day, the wood-cutter brought down 15 trees, "congratulations," the boss said. " Carry on with your work!" Highly motivated by the words of his boss, the wood cutter tried harder the next day, but he only could bring 10 trees down. The third day he tried even harder, but he was only able to bring down 7 trees. Day after day he was bringing lesser number of trees down." I must be losing my strength", the wood cutter thought.
He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on." When was the last time you sharpened your axe?" the boss asked." Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut the trees..."
That's right. Most of us NEVER update our skills. We think that whatever we have learned is very much enough. But good is not good when better result is expected. Sharpening our skills from time to time is needed and that is the key to success.
