Speak with data

This is what happens if you react before getting the facts and thinking things through!!!!

Once a large corporation felt that; it’s time for a shakeup and hired a new  CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business.

He walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and asked, ‘How much money do you make a week?’ A little surprised, the young man looked at him and replied, ‘I make $400 a week. Why?’ The CEO then handed the guy $1,600 in cash and screamed, ‘Here’s four weeks pay, now GET OUT and don’t come back.’

Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, ‘Does anyone here want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?’ From across the room came a voice, ‘Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.’

Moral of the story:

Get facts before you act; always speak with data!!
