Mrs. Smith was very excited as tonight she was going to be
able to use her new kitchen for the first time. Just yesterday
she had finished unpacking from their move to this quaint
rural town from the big city. She ventured into town and
found a interesting little market. She was surprised that
behind the meat counter there were only two trays of ground
beef and they looked oddly the same.

“What is the price of that meat?” she asked the butcher as
she pointed to the tray on the left.

“Its three dollars a pound,” the Butcher replied.

“And what about the other?” she inquired as she pointed to
the tray on the right.

“That tray is five dollars a pound,” the butcher informed her.

“Wow, they look the same,” she said in amazement. “What’s
the difference between the two trays?”

“Nobody’s ever asked before,” said the butcher. “They are
exactly the same.”

“Then why is one $2 more per pound?”

Why do you think the two trays are different amount?
here to see the real reason and how it applies to your
business and leadership skills.
