Integrity Moments - September 16, 2016

 

Working Smarter, Not Harder

It was 10:15 am before Brad realized the phone line to the building had been compromised, preventing incoming calls.  After assessing the situation, a technician simply unplugged the phone jack, waited 10 seconds, and re-connected it, correcting the problem. 

After the technician finished, Brad asked, “How much is the charge for this service call?” “$100 the technician replied.”

Outraged Brad replied “Your charging me $100 for unplugging and plugging in an outlet that took 10 seconds!?”

“I’m not charging you for what I did.” The technician responded, “I’m charging you for knowing what to do.”

Proverbs 8:11 teaches, “For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.”

Today, consider your knowledge and experience in how you value your services to the marketplace.
