A Fresh Insight on Productivity and Perspiration**

After years of watching our concrete garage floor slowly die of osteo-something-or-other, we called in a specialist. He said the only thing to do was put it out of its misery. I wasn’t there for the end, but my wife was, and she was impressed by the way the specialist and his brawny men went about their business.

They showed up the next day with sledgehammers and simply beat it to death. Then they threw the remains into a wheelbarrow and carted them away. Nothing subtle. Just muscle and knowing where to aim. The next day they put down a reinforcing mesh and summoned a cement mixing truck that regurgitated the makings of a new floor. After some skilled trowel massage, the job was done. In two long days!

“I wish you had been here,” she said. “I’ve never seen anyone work so hard or so fast. It was an eye opener. It’s great to watch people who know what they’re doing.”
