Pound that Rock

A  father who had two young sons and he wanted to build a swing-set for them, but there was a huge rock right in the middle in the space that they had prepared for it.  So he gave the one son a sledgehammer and the other son a pick axe and said, ‘Go to work on that.  When you get it cracked, we’ll smooth it out and get it out of the way, because it’s too big for us to move or carry.’  They didn’t have the money to spend to have a truck come in and move it, so the two young guys went to work. The oldest one, at some point in time, got a little tired, but the youngest one goes back out with the pick axe and hits it one more time and it cracks and crumbles.  To make a long story short, the older one gave up on it.  He thought, ‘Hey this is a lot of work, and I don’t necessarily have to have a swing-set.  I’ll go to the ballpark and play, or do something else.’  The younger one still wanted that swing-set, so he just kept swinging at it.  The moral of the story is, ‘Keep pounding that rock.’
