This Weeks Inspirational Short Story

Grandfather and Grandson

In a small field a boy and his grandfather are digging the soil. They are turning it over, smashing the lumps, preparing it for the years sowing. It’s hard work but necessary for the bountiful harvest they will receive from all their efforts.

The old man is well into his 70’s and is panting a fair bit, with every fork load thats turned sweat drips from his forehead but he doesn’t complain.

His grandson is 17 years old, fit strong and able. He curses with every fork load that’s turned, then standing there he huffs and puffs and complains before sticking the fork in once again cursing as he goes.

After a while, the young grandson notices how much more his grandfather has done than himself.

“How come grandfather you have achieved more than me when your so much older?” He asks

The reply wasn’t what he expected

“The Thinking about it, that’s the HARD bit, doing it, that the EASY bit”

The grandson is taken aback a little so the grandfather continues

“When you spend your time thinking, how hard this is, how much more to go, my back aches, that’s the hard bit. It’s far harder thinking about all these things, getting caught up in a whirlwind of your own thoughts, than it is to actual do the physical work in the first place”

“While you stand after ever fork load and allow your mind to dwell on the negative, I have done another three more fork loads than you have. I only look at what I have done which is always pleasing and positive”

Moral of Story:

As with a lot of things we don’t want to do in our lives, the thinking about it is so much harder than just getting in and doing it. Some of us will procrastinate, some of use distraction, others will just put it off altogether. However the easy bit is always in the doing, our complaining and whining won’t make the problem go away. Do what ever it takes to move forward even if it just one small bit, those one small bits make up a lot in a week. Remember you got this!
