No one gets a mouthful of food by picking between another person’s teeth.
As I sat in a reflective mode of the things that I need to do, this old adage that my dad used to say sprouted in my mind and it was just as if I heard him repeat ‘no one gets a mouthful of food by picking between another person’s teeth.’
We sit and plan for things that we would do in future and sometimes from afar, we look at those who are doing things that we hope to do and the time just keeps ticking by.
We can learn from others, but when we don’t put our learnings and experience to use, it becomes a futile effort.
Someone could take crumbs from their table and give to another, but it would still remain crumbs that are given when the other person is inclined to do so.
