Anthony was a very lazy boy and always used to postpone things. One day his father called him and made him understand the value of time that one should always do things on time. Anthony promised his father that he would never postpone things.
One day, he came to know that he had won the first prize in a singing competition that was held the previous month. He was asked to collect the prize the same day. He didn’t care and went to collect the prize the next day. But the prize became useless for him, as it was a ticket to a circus show, which was held the previous day.
Anthony learnt a lesson from this incident.
