< RM > story - Blurred Vision

Blurred Vision

A businessman was highly critical of his
competitors' storefront windows. "Why, they
are the dirtiest windows in town," he
claimed. Fellow business people grew tired of
the man's continual criticism and nitpicking
comments about the windows. One day over
coffee, the businessman carried the subject
just too far.
Before leaving, a fellow store owner sug-
gested the man get his own windows
washed. He followed the advice, and the next
day at coffee, he exclaimed, "I can't believe
it. As soon as I washed my windows, my
competitor must have cleaned his too. You
should see them shine."
Confucius once declared, "Don't complain
about the snow on your neighbor's roof when
your own doorstep is unclean."
