The Painting, The Painter & The People

Some time back I heard this story, I didn’t catch the name of this story but got the meaning, what this story wanted to convey.

There was once a brilliant painter and he decided to create his masterpiece, something different, something he had never done before. It took him some time but he finally made it. This painter now decided to take view of people as he believed that no artist is considered successful if his/her supporters, benefactors don’t support or like his/her work.

So, this painter placed his painting at a public places with a box of pins and a note saying,” Dear All, If you find any mistake in the painting, there is a box of pins kept here, please point it out”.

Next day when the painter came back he found his painting covered all over with pins. The painter understandably was dejected and feeling down. The painter after days of being gloomy and sad decided to make the exact painting again. Once the painting was done he placed the painting at the same public place, with a box of pins and a note saying,  ” Dear All, If you find any mistake in the painting, there is a box of pins kept here, please mark and correct the mistake”.

Next day when the painter came back he found his painting had no pins embedded.

Lesson: It is easy to point out mistakes in others work than correcting the problem. Point a mistake only if you have the guts to correct the problem/mistake.
