Today Is An Important Day.

Recently I had a conversation with a old, childhood
friend, and we were talking about some of people that
we knew... that we had grown up with.

The conversation reminded me of a story I heard
awhile ago. And then I saw it posted, as well, on
a colleague's wall. And I knew that I had to share
it with you.  Here’s my retelling of it:

Tom just moved into a new neighborhood recently.
He liked his house and his environment, but there
was one thing he didn’t get.

His neighbor, Mr Tan, had a dog that kept howling
non-stop. Literally. Day in, day out.

“Auuuuuhhhh………. Aaaauhhhh……….”

Initially Tom thought the dog was just going through
a phase, so he ignored the howls, thinking it would
eventually stop. But it didn’t. It continued howling.


1 day passed. Nothing changed.
2 days passed. Still howling.
3 days.
5 days.
1 week.
2 weeks.
1 month. Still howling, with no signs of stopping.

“Auuuhhh………….Oouuuuuhhhhh…….Au au auuhhhhh..”

Finally, Tom couldn’t stand it anymore. One fine
day, he walked over to Mr Tan’s house to see what
was going on.

Sure enough, there was the dog, sitting at the front
porch, howling pitifully to whoever was walking by.

…Au au au auu au au auuuuhhhhh….”

On the other hand, Mr Tan was relaxing on his bench
at the lawn, leisurely reading his newspapers and
sipping a cup of coffee.

Wondering what was going on, Tom walked up to
Mr Tan.

Tom: “Hi Mr Tan, is that your dog?”

Mr Tan: “Which dog?” He glanced around. “Oh
that. Yep , he’s mine.”

Tom: “Why does he keep howling?”

Mr Tan: “Oh, that’s cause he’s sitting on a nail.”

Tom: “Sitting on a nail?!?”

Tom gave the dog a bewildered look.“

Tom: Okay… so why doesn’t he just get away from
the nail then??”

Mr. Tan: “Well, Tom………”,

Mr Tan took a slow sip of his coffee before replying.

Mr. Tan: “…That’s because he doesn’t find it painful
enough yet.”

Many of us say that we are sick and tired of the way
our life is going. However, how tired are we really?

If you have been trying to accomplish something for
a very long time and you're not seeing any results,
you may have gotten accustomed to "whimpering"
about it. I have learned that we can become addicted
to our moods. Although we may not like being in a
complaining mood, they are familiar and comfortable
to us like an old habit.

Today is an important day...

Knowing this is wonderful, because we have the
power inside to change old habits as well as our

Get off the nail! Stop complaining about what hasn't
happened and what you want to happen or who is
keeping you from making it happen.

Get up, Get out and make it happen

Kevin :)
