|A young Lieutenant pondering over a drink at the Officers' Mess asks his Commanding Officer, "Sir, despite my best efforts, I seem to be unable to earn commendations for my work and my ability does not seem to evolve ?"|
The Commanding Officer patiently answered: "Son, have you seen the gulls flying by the rising sun, with their wings alight, looking like they're on fire?"
"Yes, my sir, I have."
"And the sunlight, beautifully scattered across hundreds of tiny waves, across the eternity that makes up this endless ocean?"
"Yes, sir, I have already witnessed it."
"Then the moon... that kisses the calm waters, who in return reflects all of its enormous beauty?"
"Yes, sir, I have also observed this marvelous phenomenon."
"That is the problem. You keep watching all this nonsense instead of focusing on work."
