A screw

There was an industrialist whose production line inexplicably broke down, costing him millions per day. He consulted various technicians but could not track the source of error in the machinery.

He finally finds an expert to check the matter. The expert just takes out a screwdriver, turns one screw, and the factory cranks back to life.He presents a bill for £10,000.

This came as a shock to owner as he thought that it was only one screw.Affronted, the factory owner demands an itemised version.

The expert was happy to oblige. The note read:

For turning a screw: £1.
For knowing which screw to turn: £9,999.

It is rightly said that the greatness of work is not judged by the effort spent behind it, but instead by the knowledge, intent and outcome of it.

The complexity of work is different for each and every individual depending on their knowledge and experience for doing the same.
