Management Funda 16: It's Performance that counts!!

Here is a good one to add to my collection of Mangement Funda Collection.

A Priest dies  and is awaiting his turn in line at the Heaven's Gates.

Ahead of him is a guy, fashionably dressed, in dark sun glasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket and jeans.

God asks him: Please tell me who are you, so that I may know whether to admit you into the kingdom of Heaven or not?

The guy replies: I am Pandi, Auto driver from Chennai!

God consults his ledger, smiles & says to Pandi: Please take this silken robe; gold scarf  and enter the Kingdom of 
Heaven ...

Now it is the priest's turn. He stands erect and speaks out in a booming voice: I am Pope's Assistant; Head Priest of the so and so Church for the last 40 years.

God consults his ledger; says to the Priest: Please take this cotton robe &; enter the Kingdom of Heaven ...

'Just a minute,' says the agonized Priest. 'How is it that a foul mouthed, rash driving Auto Driver is given a Silken robe ; a Golden scarf and me, a Priest, who's spent his whole life preaching your Name & goodness has to make do with a Cotton robe?'

'Results my friend, results
,' shrugs God.
'While you preached, people SLEPT; but when he drove his Auto, people PRAYED'

 PERFORMANCE & not POSITION that ultimately counts."
