Knowing where to put your effort!! Inspiring Stroy

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship’s owners
tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix
the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since
he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he
arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very
carefully, top to bottom.
 
Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know
what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and
pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine
lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed! A
week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand
dollars.
 
“What?!” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”
 
So they wrote a note to the old man saying, “Please send us an itemized
bill.”
 
The man sent a bill that read: *
 
Tapping with a hammer ………… ……… … $              2.00
Knowing where to tap ………… ……… ……. $       9998.00* *
 
Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes
all the difference.*
