    Cracked Pot Cracked Pot Presentation Transcript

    • Here’s some good old Chinese wisdom!
    • An elderly Chinesewoman had twolarge pots, eachhung on the endsof a pole, whichshe carried acrossher neck.
    • One of the potshad a crack in itwhile the otherpot was perfectand alwaysdelivered a fullportion of water.
    • At the end of thelong walk fromthe stream to thehouse, thecracked potarrived only halffull.
    • For a full two years this went ondaily, with the woman bringinghome only one and a half pots ofwater.
    • After 2 yearsof what itperceived tobe bitterfailure, itspoke to thewoman oneday by thestream.
    • “I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”
    • The old woman smiled, “Did younotice that there are flowers onyour side of the path, but not onthe other pot’s side?
    • That’s becauseI have alwaysknown aboutyour flaw, so Iplanted flowerseeds on yourside of thepath, and everyday while wewalk back, youwater them.”
    • “For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.”
    • Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.”
    • Each of us has our own unique flaw…
    • To all of my crackpot friends,have a great dayand remember to smell the flowers,on your side of the path.
