    the guy at the top is also doing it wrong, he works hard, but not smart
    the shortest distance between two point is a straight line, but sometimes it's not the fastest :)

    Sometimes, though, you have to have the right tools, or the right partner to dig until you get the gold/diamonds or whatever. Sometimes the treasure is there, but it's not just inches away, it's yards, or hundreds of yards away. How long can you hold on, how far or deep can you dig?

    Maybe you'll have to use a rig, instead of your own exertion, which can give out even if you have the will power to go on. All I'm saying is, don't give up, but don't deeply underestimate the struggle---the loot may not be buried 2-3 feet down, but 200 feet down!

    reminds me of this story:


    Once there were was man who sold all his belongings and went prospecting for gold.

    He discovered a vein of the shining ore, staked a claim, and proceeded to get down to the serious business of getting the gold ore out of the mine.

    As he put his wealth in employing people to dig the gold ore out for him something strange happened and the vein of gold ore disappeared!

    He had come to the end of the rainbow and the pot of gold was no longer there. The man continued to employ more people to dig deeper, but without success.

    Finally, he gave up in disgust. He sold his equipment and claim rights for a meager amount to a businessman and took a train back home.

    The businessman who bought the claim hired an engineer to examine the rock strata of the mine.

    The engineer advised him to continue digging in the same spot where the previous man had left off. And one foot deeper, the businessman struck gold...!

    If only the other man had not given up and dug one foot more, he could have been a millionaire.
