I first came across this concept in Jeff Atwood’s blog. Here’s how it goes, a traveller on his journey through a mountain came across a lumberjack hard at work, the traveller realized that the lumberjack’s saw was blunt and after a long time hard at work, he didn’t progress much. So the traveller suggests sharpening the saw, to which the lumberjack replied “I’m too busy doing my work that I don’t have time to sharpen my saw”. This situation is something we all face, we are too busy doing our jobs that we ignore things that are not directly related to our profession but would nevertheless improve our efficiency.
The Non-technical version:
