Frank, a woodcutter, applied for a job with a timber merchant. And he got it! The job was a really good one, so Frank was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area to work in. The first day, Frank brought 21 trees back to the factory.
“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Keep it up!”
Very motivated by the boss’s words, Frank tried harder the next day. But he only brought back 17 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only brought back 10 trees. He went to the boss and apologized. “I don’t understand what is going on.”
“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?”, asked the boss.
“Sharpen? I have had no time to sharpen my axe. I’ve been too busy cutting down trees.”
