Stay Focus

25 07 2007

During the World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine Camp Volunteers’ training, we were told this brief story:

A taxi arrived at the front of a train station and three men hurried down from the car. As they rushed up to the train’s platform where the train was waiting, the train’s engine went “chu-chu” signaling that it was about to depart. But before the three men could reach the train, the train had started moving. And so the three men gave chase. They ran and ran along the long platform till two of them managed to jump into the train through the last door. Exasperated and tired of running, the third man stopped chasing and stood there cursing as he catches his breath. He could not help but to curse his two friends. He cursed and cursed and cursed for about 3 minutes when suddenly he burst out laughing. “HAHAHA!” he went. As the people around him stared at his peculiarity, with tears of laughter in his eyes, he had this to say: “Those two jokers were supposed to come and see me off! Instead, they went off with the train! Idiots! &^(#^#\”.

Moral of the story: It’s easy to lose focus when there’s so much going on around us. Nevertheless, no matter how busy or distracted we are, we should never forget our task at hand. Stay focus despite the commotions/excitements.
