Most of you must have heard about the story in the beginning of the book " Rich Dad Poor Dad". Story: There was scarcity of water in a village and thus people had to go quite far in order to get water for daily needs. There was a farmer who thought to make money from this situation. He started bringing water for other people of the village at nominal cost. Soon he started getting more and more orders and thus he had to employ his two sons in the business. They kept running whole day to fulfill the order. There was another farmer who believed in smart work. He went outside the village, hired some experts for making a water pipeline and invested good money in the project. Once the project was done, he came back and declared that he will provide the water for half the cost. As a result, the villagers started ordering from the later guy and the first farmer lost all the work. Moral: Do not run with baskets but make a pipeline. What are you doing currently ? Note: I do not remember the story exactly but it does not matters anyway.
