Know your objectives


During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director,
"what is the criteria that defines a patient to be institutionalized?"

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub."

1. Would you use the spoon?
2. Would you use the teacup?
3. Would you use the bucket?

Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would choose the bucket as it is larger than the spoon."

No," answered the Director. "A normal person would pull the drain plug."

He flunked..... .....

There is a difference between an objective and actions! 

Unless we understand our objective, we will be wasting our time in inappropriate actions.
Always know and understanding the objective first.
