Why You Must Avoid Short-Cuts



“People forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well you did it.” – Howard Newton

The law of “Cause and Effect” is a natural law. What you sow is what you reap. What you get out is in direct proportion to what you put in. Delayed gratification is best for business. Human greed and the desire for instant gratification are what make some people fall victims to Advance Fee Fraud, a k a “419” fraudsters. Follow laid-down rules and procedures and avoid the desire for instant-wealth. There is no free-lunch anywhere even in Freetown. The ultimate loser is the man who cuts corners in doing business. Only one mistake is required to put him and his business into disrepute. Doing things properly is and will always remain the best option.

“Once there was a lark singing in the forest. A farmer came by with a box full of worms. The lark stopped him and asked what do you have in the box and where are you going? The farmer replied that he had worms and he was going to the market to trade them for feathers. The lark said I have many feathers, I will pluck one and give it to you and that will save me looking for worms. The farmer gave the worms to the lark and the lark plucked a feather and gave it in return. The next day, the same thing happened and the day after and on and on until a day came that the lark had no more feathers. Now it could no longer fly to go hunting for worms. It started looking ugly and stopped singing and very soon it died.” Adapted from Shiv Khera, “You can Win.”

The short-cut the lark thought was the easiest way for it to get food turned out to be the costliest. This is the moral of this story.
