A You Tube presentation says that at 211 degree Fahrenheit, water turns hot. At 212 degree water boils and with boiling water, comes out steam. It says that steam can power a locomotive. It continues saying that it is just one extra degree that makes all the difference. It asks us to think of an extra degree effort in all areas of life, be it business, study or whatever. It also reminds us that the difference between an Olympic Gold Medal and no medal is too small and even less than a ‘one degree effort’. In running races, we know that a one by one hundred fraction of a second is enough to make this difference. The East remains adamant to changes, while the West is anxious to accept into life, whatever is effective.
In the comments column of the show, a wrestler has written, “I’m a wrestler and I saw this video a couple of days ago. This has motivated me and I watch this on my iphone before every match and it gets me pumped up.”
A caring Mom wrote, “I'm dedicating this video to my son who is working hard to get his college degree.” I remember the parable of a boats man, out in the sea, which one of my teachers once told me. The experience of the boats man moving over the seas is the same for long…. the same sea, the same sky and the same horizon. But everything changes the moment he sees the mark of any land in the horizon. The whole difference happens in the very second he see the land. Most of us are away from success by just a wink of an eye. Good, at least if we are aware of it.
