  2. 2. A young man went to the local expert on gems and said that he wanted to become a gemologist. The expert brushed him off. But the young man pleaded for a chance.
  3. 3. Finally the expert consented and told the youth, "Be here tomorrow." The next morning, the expert put a jade stone in the boy's hand and told him to hold it.
  4. 4. The expert then went about his work – cutting, weighing, and setting gems. The boy sat quietly and waited.
  5. 5. The following morning the expert again placed the jade stone in the youth's hand and told him to hold it. On the third, fourth, and fifth day the expert repeated the same exercise and the same instructions. On the sixth day the youth was again told to hold the jade stone. He could no longer stand it... He had after all come to learn something.. Not just hold a jade everyday!!
  6. 6. "Master," he asked, "when am I going to learn something?" he complained. "You'll learn," the expert replied and went about his business. Several more days went by and the youth's frustration mounted…
  7. 7. One morning as the expert approached and asked him to hold out his hand, The boy was about to blurt out that he could no longer go on like this and that he wanted to learn something!!! But as the master placed the stone in the youth's hand…
