Long story short, Didi Dodo and the estate agreed to invest by setting up shop in their village rice. Dodo shop located in northern villages, while Didi store located in the south. Initially the two stores are pretty crowded. But in the long run only shops that remain lively Didi, while the Dodo began deserted shops. Even most of the customers of Dodo also moved into the store Didi. It lasted for months, till one day the father of the twins returned to the village. He wondered why only Didi a crowded store, while the Dodo not. Almost no difference between their stores. They are the same - the same kind, selling for the same price, and the rice was being sold have the same quality.
When observed closely, eventually the rich man saw a small difference that causes customers to move to Didi Dodo. That difference lies in the way of Dodo and Didi wrapped rice. Suppose there are buyers who purchased one kilogram of rice, the Dodo using a big scoop to take the rice, pour the rice into the plastic and put it on the scales. Because using a large bucket, then the number of the above scales are always more than 1 kg. Dodo then use a small bucket, taking advantages of rice until the number of exactly one kilogram.
Didi is another thing. He uses a small bucket to pour the rice into the wrapper, then put it on the scales. Because using a small bucket, certainly less than one kilogram. He then slowly increase the amount of rice
up to one kilogram. Then wrap it up.
If you are the buyer, what's your opinion?
Rice which would you buy?
When it is asked the rich man to customers store their children, they say that Didi's good, because it's always 'embellished' their rice. Instead they argued, the Dodo cheat, because the rice bought always `minus'. Logically, the customer understands that the amount purchased together one kilogram, but they apparently unconscious brain to distinguish between the `good 'and the` dirty'. Indeed, at first, this is also not recognized by the customer, but when they start comparing and Didi Dodo, `cheating 'it began to appear. And feel the `Dodo kecurangan'nya to losing customers.
What is the meaning of the above stories in our lives?
Occasionally, we unknowingly, we behave like the Dodo to others, so that others may also be different for us. For example, in the office, your boss is more friendly with your colleagues and be joking, but when talking with you, he will be presenting a formal manner. Unfortunately, most of us prefer to think negatively about it, blaming other people first without wanting to look at ourselves. We may always argue that our colleagues are more beautiful, because he has connections, and a thousand other reasons. But rarely do we want to see ourselves, why are we treated different way.
Why do not we try to introspection, in fact whether the small differences that make a difference from the bosses treat us and our colleagues? Maybe we're the same - the same clever, just - just like working hard and together - together have a high commitment to the job. If we want to watch, maybe we'd be surprised, because it may be true - right thing so small. Maybe we work very seriously, whereas our colleagues prefer to work with a smile. So naturally bosses prefer to talk with people who are friendly rather than a serious person. Or maybe from the way we delivered the report. We delivered the work report fully and at length, whereas you peer more concise and brief.
So ... How about the way we dress? Are we pretty neat and good looking. How does the way we greet people? Do we wait for someone to say good morning first and we respond, or do we first spoke to you?
True, it is not possible we make ourselves perfect. But that does not mean we should not fix our mistakes. And fix a small error at least will make our lives better, both for ourselves and in our relationships with others.
