The Widow and the Sheep

Once there was a widow who owned just one sheep. Wishing to make the most of his wool, she sheared him so closely that she cut his skin as well as his fleece. Suffering from such painful treatment, the sheep cried out, “Why are you torturing me like this? What will my blood add to the weight of the wool? If you want my flesh, send for the butcher, who will put me out of my misery at once. But if you want my fleece, send for the shearer, who will clip my wool without drawing my blood!”

Old Learning: Cutting small costs can cause great wounds.

New Take

Specialists are there for a reason. While doing things on own is great, it is necessary to acquire the skills first.
