“The two most important requirements for major success are: first, being in the right place at the right time, and second, doing something about it.  ~Ray Kroc

Story: The Right Place at Right Time

A mother and a baby camel were lying around under a tree.

Then the baby camel asked, “Why do camels have humps?”

The mother camel considered this and said, “We are desert animals so we have the humps to store water so we can survive with very little water.”

The baby camel thought for a moment then said, “Ok…why are our legs long and our feet rounded?”

The mama replied, “They are meant for walking in the desert.”

The baby paused. After a beat, the camel asked, “Why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes they get in my way.”

The mama responded, “Those long thick eyelashes protect your eyes from the desert sand when it blows in the wind.

The baby thought and thought. Then he said, “I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the desert then why in the Zoo?”

Lesson of the story: Skills and abilities are only useful if you are in the right place at the right time. Otherwise, they go to waste.

“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.  ~Abraham Lincoln”
