Corporate Lessons – Story of a Pencil

Posted: May 1, 2009 in General

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting it into the box.

There are 5 things you need to know, he told to the pencil, before he send  out into the world.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.

Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.

Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write. You might break many times , but you cannot stop leaving your mark with what you are inside.

Always remember these Five things in mind and you will become the best pencil you can be.
