A Quote by Dan on enlightenment, story, and milarepa

Milarepa had searched everywhere for enlightenment, but could find no answer - until one day, he saw an old man walking slowly down a mountain path, carrying a heavy sack. Immediately, Milarepa sensed that this old man knew the secret he had been desperately seeking for many years.

'Old man, please tell me what you know. What is enlightenment?'

The old man smiled at hime for a moment, and swung the heavy burden off his shoulders, and stood straight.

'Yes, I see!' cried Milarepa. 'My everlasting gratitude. But please, one question more. What is after enlightenment?'

Smiling again, the old man picked up the sack once again, lunged it over his shoulders, steadied his burden, and continued on his way.

A Quote by Mitch on repeat themselves, workplace, and story

The quick and easy way to stop people from repeating themselves in any situation, especially in the workplace is to simply say You’ve told me that story before, and it’s an excellent story, and repeat the lesson or point you took from that story the first time you heard it.
