The tenacious woodcutter. There was once a lumberjack who showed up to work in a lumberyard. The salary was good and the working conditions even better, so the lumberjack set out to make a good paper. The first day he presented himself to the foreman, who gave him an ax and assigned him an area of the forest. The excited man went out to the woods to chop. In one day he cut eighteen trees. "I congratulate you," the foreman told him. Keep it up.
Encouraged by the words of the foreman, the woodcutter decided to improve his own work the next day. So that night he went to bed early. The next morning, he got up before anyone else and went to the forest. Despite all his efforts, he could not cut more than fifteen trees. -I must be tired, he thought. And he decided to go to bed with the sunset.
At dawn, he got up determined to beat his mark of eighteen trees. However, that day did not even reach half. The next day there were seven, then five, and on the last day he spent the whole afternoon trying to cut down his second tree. Restless for what the foreman would say, the woodcutter went to tell him what was happening to him and to swear to him and to swear that he was struggling to the limits of fainting. The foreman asked him:
-When did you sharpen your ax for the last time?
-Affiliate, I have not had time to sharpen. I've been too busy cutting down trees.
