Value of Experience

A ship engine failed, NO ONE could fix it.

Then they brought in a man with 40 yrs. on the job. He inspected the engine carefully.
Then reached into his bag & pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped a spot.
Immediately, the engine rocked into life.

It was fixed!

Seven days later, the owners got his bill for $10,000.

‘What?!’ the owners exclaimed. ‘He scarcely did anything.’ They asked for an itemized bill.

His response:

“Tapping with a hammer = $2
Knowing where to tap = $9,998”

Lesson:

Don’t Ever Underestimate Experience!
