Smart Work versus Hard Work Once two men had a heated argument with each other. Who could cut more firewood from morning till four in the afternoon? They decided to find out. The next morning the two men started their work. At first, they worked at the same speed. But in an hour one of them found that the other had stopped cutting. Realizing that this was his chance, the first man started cutting wood with double effort.

Ten minutes passed, and he heard the second man working again. Then the first man found that his opponent had stopped again. The first man started working, sensing the smell of victory. This lasted all day long. Every hour one of them stopped for ten minutes and the other continued to work. When the time expired, the first man who worked without stopping was absolutely sure that he would win the prize.
