Sharpen Your Saw


Stephen Covey of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People tells the story of a man who was walking through a forest when he came across a frustrated lumberjack as he labored in vein, cursing and swearing.

“What’s the problem?”  The man asked.

“My saw’s blunt and won’t cut the tree properly.”  The lumberjack responded.

“Why don’t you just sharpen it?”

“But if you sharpened your saw, you could cut more efficiently and effectively than before.”

“But I don’t have time to stop!” The lumberjack retorted, getting more frustrated.
