Story 1: Sculptor Reply..! – Excellence in Work
Once a man visited a temple under construction in India. There he saw a sculptor making an Idol of God.
Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying near by.
Surprised he asked to sculptor, “Do you need two statues of same idol?”
Without even looking up, busy with his work, Sculptor replied, “No, we need only one but the first one got damaged at last stage.”
Man examined idol and found no apparent damage. He asked, “Where is damage?”
Still busy with his work, Sculptor replied, “There is a scratch on nose of idol.”
Man got curious and asked, “Where are you going to install this idol?”
Sculptor replied, “It will be installed on top of pillar twenty feet high.”
Man questioned, “If idol is going to be install that far, who is going to notice that little scratch on nose of idol?”
Sculptor stopped his work and looked up at gentleman, smiled and said, “I will know it.”
The Desire to Excel is exclusive of the fact whether Someone else Appreciates it or not. Excellence is a Drive from inside, Not outside. Excellence is Not for someone else to Notice but for your Own Satisfaction and Efficiency.
