Assume ourselves


In our day to day life we assume many things and limit our capabilities. Some times we land into problems also. See a situation! Japanese grocery shops have space problem, they does not have big spacious shops. like in US. They sell watermelons which are big and ROUND and occupied more space. Hence shops were not interested in sell watermelons.

Nevertheless farmers does not want to discontinue watermelons cultivation. The farmers did not assume that it was impossible - and simply asked how it could be done. They decided to have a different approach.

They found out that if watermelon is put in a square box when they are growing, the watermelon will also take a shape of box - and grow into as a square fruit. Ultimately they made it. 

This made the grocery shops happy. It was much easier and cost effective  for shops to ship the watermelons. Consumers also loved them because they took less space in their refrigerators which are much smaller than those in the US meaning that the growers could charge a premium price for them.

What does this mean in our life or at our Job? Let us introspect ourselves, we will meet soon!
