Då och då får jag mejl från några mejlinglistor. Det här kommer från en amerikansk mejlinglista och jag gillar deras historier men orkar aldrig översätta allt..så här kommer en engelsk version..förstår ni inte något så bara fråga 🙂
A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers).
The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:
Boy: ”Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): ”I already have someone to cut my lawn.”
Boy: ”Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.”
Woman: “I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn”.
Boy: (with more perseverance): ”Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida.”
Woman: “No, thank you”.
With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.
Store Owner: ”Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.”
Boy: ”No thanks”.
Store Owner: “But you were really pleading for one”.
Boy: “No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady, I was talking to!”
Have you checked the performance of your job, whatever it is? Do you strive to make it perfect? This is what we call ”Self Appraisal”. Even the word ’IMPOSSIBLE’ says ’I M POSSIBLE’.
Holy Quran: “And you see the mountains, which you suppose to be stationery, while they drift like passing clouds. It is the handiwork of Allah, Who has made everything PERFECT”. (An-Naml 27:88).
The Prophet (saww) said “May Allah bless the person who performs a job with precision and perfects it”. Allah is Perfect and likes those who strive to make things perfect.
