I heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed. It revealed to me again that smart work which knows what to do is far beyond hard work which is just doing something. You need a SMART work Plan that is going to work out smart not just work hard.

In this story, the ship owner tried one expert after another, but still none of them could figure out how to fix the engine. Then, they brought in an old man who had been fixing ship 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 owners were there, watching the 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.

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 the old man a note saying, “please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer is $2.00 knowing where to tap is $9,998.00 which gives grand total of $10,000

while it is necessary that we must put in some effort of hard work, we must accept that it is Smart work that gives us real “multiplying effect”.

  1. It is alil bit cunny to me. Cant smart work lead to greediness .in the sense that you double price your gain when it is supposed to be less

    • In some cases, people tends to mix both together. Meanwhile, double price your profit in an outrageous way to be greedy and should not be encourage. smart work we are talking about simply means when you pay attention on what is important and pay less attention on what is less important. when you seek for the best and cheaper way of achieving the set goals.

  2. Smart work is all about knowing the right thing to do at the right time and doing it.
