There was a man who worked as a foreman at a factory.

Every morning on his way to work, he would pass a particular shop selling watches. He stopped in front of the shop and adjust the time on his wrist watch, and will then proceed to work. He did this everyday.

The watch shop owner became very curious and one day stopped the man and asked him what he was doing.


The man said that he was the foreman of the factory and everyday it was his duty to ring the bell to sound the alarm at 5.00 pm to indicate that it was time to stop work for the day.

He wanted to be accurate with the time and therefore everyday he would look at the big clock in the shop to adjust the time on his wrist watch.

The shop owner started laughing! He said, “Everyday at 5.00 pm when the factory bell sounds the alarm, I would quickly adjust the time on my clock”.

So what do we learn from this simple story ? 😦

It is important for us to realize that to be successful we have to follow the right leaders. We should choose role models with good characters, values and beliefs, otherwise we may find that we may reach the “top of our ladder”, but only to realize that we are on the “top of a wrong ladder”.

Be careful when you choose a role model, choose the one who can assist and inspire you to greatness.

Have a great day ahead !!! 🙂
