The cruise ship owners tried many experts but none of them was able to fix the engine problem.

The giant luxury cruise ship failed and the gigantic engines were not running. All the reserved tickets for the trips were cancelled. Tickets were refunded to the travelers. "Hundreds of thousands" dollars were lost daily.

The cruise ship owners tried many experts but none of them was able to fix the engine problem.

Finally, the cruise ship owners brought an old man who fixed ships since he was young man.

The old man brought a huge bag of tools with him, and he instantly went to work. He examined the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

The two ship owners were watching this old man, hoping he will fix the engine problem.

After investigating the engine, the old man went to his huge bag and pulled out a small hammer. The old man gently tapped something on the engine.

Immediately the ship's engine came to life. He carefully moved his hammer away. The engine was fixed.

After a week, the cruise ship owners received a bill from the old man for $10,000 dollars.

What? the owners with surprise asked. 'He hardly did anything'?

So the owners wrote back to the old man a note saying, 'Please send us an itemized bill.'


The old man sent a bill that had the following details: 
Tapping with a hammer................ $2.00
Knowing where to tap................ $9,998.00

Moral of the Story: Effort is very important, but knowing where to make an effort makes big difference!
