Once upon a time a very strong
woodcutter asked for a job with
a wood merchant, and he got it. The
salary was really good.
For that reason, the woodcutter
determined to do his best. His
boss gave him an axe and showed him
the area where he was
supposed to work.
The first day, the woodcutter brought
18 trees. The boss said
“Congratulations, Go on that way!”
Very motivated by the boss
words, the woodcutter tried harder the
next day, but could bring
15 trees only. The third day he tried
even harder, but could bring
10 trees only. Day after day he was
bringing less and less trees.
“I am losing my strength”, the
woodcutter thought. He went to the
boss and apologized, saying that he
could not understand what
was going on. “When was the last time
you sharpened your axe?”
the boss asked.
“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my
axe. I have been very busy
trying to cut trees…”.
Some students study well. But they
dont revise their previous
concepts. Finally they ended up with
tension, poor performance
and failure. You should not ignore
revision. When you learn a
new concept, it is stored at a
temporary memory location (Conscious
mind). When you learn another new
concept, the previous concept
is erased / deleted from your mind.
After learning a new concept,
If you revise that again and again, that
concept goes from temporary
memory location (Conscious mind) to
permanent memory location
(Sub conscious mind). Hard work
without revision is a waste.
Give good importance on revision part.
whenever you learn a concept,
you have to revise it again and again.
