Education: Knowledge, experience and perception. A 2 minute lesson

Robbers entered a bank. 

One of them shouts: "This is a hold up! Don't move! The money belongs to the bank. Your lives belong to you."

Immediately all the people in the bank laid on the floor quietly.

(This is an example of how the correct wording of a sentence can make everyone change their view of the world. >>> Or missing an opportunity, they could have hired customers to aid them in their business by proposing them a share).


One woman laid on the floor in a provocative manner.

The robber approached her saying, " Ma'am, this is a robbery, not a rape. Please, behave accordingly."

(This is an example of how to behave professionally, and focus on the goal . Or misreading what was the customer's fantasy (the client is always right).


While running from the bank, the youngest robber (who had a college degree) said to the oldest robber (who had barely finished elementary school), "Hey, maybe we should count how much we stole."

The older man replied: "Don't be stupid. It's a lot of money so let's wait for the news on TV to find out how much money was taken from the bank."

(This is an example of how life experience is more important than a degree.  Or an experienced professional would have known what was the size of the take, to know if it was worth the effort).


After the robbery, the manager of the bank said to his accountant, "Let's call the cops and tell them how much has been stolen."

"Wait,", said the accountant, "before we do that, let's add the $800,000 we took for ourselves a few months ago and just say that it was stolen as part of today's robbery."

(This is an example of taking advantage of an opportunity. Or they should have taken more).


The following day, it was reported in the news that the bank was robbed of $3 million.

The robbers then counted the money, but they found only $1 million.

"We risked our lives for $1 million, while the bank's management robbed two million dollars without taking any risks... Maybe it is better to learn how to work the system, instead of against it."

(This is an example of how knowledge can be more useful than power. I would say that saying the truth is not always to your financial advantage: perception VS reality).


Morality: Give a person a gun, and he can rob a bank.

             Give a person a bank, and he can rob everyone.

             Give a person a news channel and he can ... do anything he wants.
