Experience Matters :)

A giant ship engine failed.  The ship’s owners tried one expert
after another, but none of them could figure out how to fix the
engine.  Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing
ships since he was a young [boy].  He carried a large bag of tools
with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work.  He
inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.  Two of the
ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would
know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached
into his bag and pulled out a small hammer.  He gently tapped
something.  Instantly, the engine lurched into life.  He carefully
put his hammer away.  The engine was fixed!  A week later, the
owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand
dollars.  “What?!” the owners exclaimed.  “He hardly did
anything!”  So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please
send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer………………….. $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap…………………….. $ 9,998.00

Effort is important, however Knowing where to tap is experience. If you think, hiring experienced resources is expensive, try hiring an amateur, it might “cost” a lot hiring the one who doesn’t know where to tap 😉
