There is a story of a shepherd’s son who goes out to spend his first night alone tending his family’s sheep. During the night he awakens to the sound of a howling wolf. It is very dark and he is seized with fear. He grabs his rifle and runs out into the darkness to protect the sheep. Across the field he sees a wolf attacking one of the sheep. He puts his rifle to his shoulder and takes aim. In his head he hears his father saying, “At night, it is very difficult to judge the distance to your target, and more than likely, you will underestimate the distance and miss low. To have a better chance of hitting the target, aim high.” The shepherd’s son adjusts his aim, raising the sights ever so slightly, and hits the mark.
Gary Keller tells this story in the Millionaire Real Estate Agent book as a way to illustrate life lessons.
“No one can accurately judge what the future holds. Tomorrow is dark and as difficult to judge as the gap between the shepherd boy and his target. Yet so often we set our goals as if the next day, month, year or decade were clear as an August afternoon….Aim High!”
