BETTER TO GET AN EGG TODAY THAN A HEN TOMORROW

An opportunity that we get today may not be available tomorrow. If we set aside the chances at hand hoping to get bigger chances, we are liable to be getting rejected. So it is always wise to accept and utilize what­ever is at hand than being over ambitious hoping to get bigger things tomorrow. Today is what counts, tomorrow may never come. If one is offered an egg with promises to give a hen later he should accept the egg instead of rejecting it in the hope of getting a hen later which is more valuable. It he rejects the egg and wait for the hen, the promised hen may not be available tomorrow. Thus he will lose both the egg and the hen.
