Sometimes I think of this story when in periods the day-to-day job is overwhelming. It's a story before chain-saws and the digital era :). But the chain-saw it-self must be a result of someone how took a break thinking - there must be a better way...

"A woodcutter strained to saw down a tree. A young man who was watching asked
-What are you doing?
-Are you blind?” the woodcutter replied.
- I’m cutting down this tree.
The young man was said.
- You look exhausted! Take a break. Sharpen your saw.
The woodcutter explained to the young man that he had been sawing for hours and did not have time to take a break.
The young man pushed back…
- If you sharpen the saw, you would cut down the tree much faster.
The woodcutter said
- I don’t have time to sharpen the saw. Don’t you see I’m too busy?"
