JRD Tata had a friend who used to say that he misplaces and loses his pen very often. He will use only very cheap pens so that he need not worry about losing them. He was worried about carelessness habit.
JRD suggested to him to buy the costliest pen he could afford and see what happens. he did that and purchased a 22 carat gold cross pen. After nearly six months JRD met him and asked him if he continues to misplace his pen.
His friend said that he is very careful about his costly pen and surprised how he was changed! JRD explained to him that the value of the pen made the difference and there was nothing wrong with him as a person!
This is what happens in our life. We are careful with things which we value most.
If we value our health, we will careful about what and how we eat
If we value our Friend, We will treat them with respect
If we value money, we will be careful while spending
If we value our time, we will not waste it.
If we value relationship, we will not break it.
Carefulness is a basic character all of us have; we know when to be careful!
Carelessness only shows what we don’t value……
