I was traveling in Mumbai by car in the early morning. In Mumbai you find poor people on the cross road asking for help, specially, they ask for some cash tip.

Our car was stop by driver one cross road a sit was a read signal.

One poor man, came near the car and ask for the some help. (I was looking to him with analytical eye and involve in thinking). My host immediately open his wallet and give him Rs.100/ (2$).

Poor man surprisingly return Rs.50/ (1$).

I was watching ….silently….involve…..

My host said: keep it. I have already given you. No issue. Have it.

Poor man said: No sir. You take it back.

My host said; WHY????

Poor man replied: Sir, I was also spending money lavishly and that’s why I am on the road. I have not taken care of my money but you take care of your money.

I was really shocked.

What a great management message was passed by the poor man to the world.

“Use your money properly. Plan before you spend.” PLAN FIRST – ACT SECOND.”
