We always face situations where boss says to complete the work in no time by taking extra resources if required....& then maybe this reply can help.... It was a hot meeting at the office conference hall. All the people from the department had been called. The VP was looking much tensed & the mood was extremely bad. My friend asked me -"Hey, what is this meeting all about? I told - May be they will decide on when to have the next meeting. People around smiled at each other. Then the VP started talking. It was about the recent attrition rate that was so high. Around 10 people had put in their papers. All experienced guys. It was quarter end and so work was huge. If we do not complete the work on time, we need to be paying heavy penalty said the VP. The VP turned to the manager and told "Hey - take how much ever resources you want. Recruit or take them from other departments. But complete the work in another 25 days. Take people and complete it man. To this the sweet manager replied "Sir! Give me one wife and nine months and I shall show you results. Don't give me nine wives and one month. I cannot do anything." Everyone looked at him blank. The VP was not prepared for this answer. We looked at the manager and thought "What an Awesome Guy with an excellent Reply!" Sure its a TOP RESPONSE

yes those kinds of people are so ambitious! they want HUGE things to be done in no time, with their FEW provisions. it aint matter how many people is working with them, if the time provided is so short right?

This is a very motivation story. I need to tell this story to my friends. In fact we always in hurry, we want something quickly and we don't think a lot about the time that we need. Everybody want it now, right now, but in fact everything have it time, if you want the good result, you must follow the time, the frame time... Anyway this story is not good for one who always do some thing in the 'last time'...

That is a very good line and one I had never heard before. Definitely a "Best Reply."
