[00:00.00]Lesson 6   Odds and Ends
[00:27.00]On these days,much of the profit of a business
[00:32.18]-- sometimes the whole of its success
[00:36.29]--depends on the use of the odds and ends.
[00:40.99]The odds and ends are various small things.
[00:45.67]They are left over when the main thing is produced.
[00:50.86]Yet they have a real value of their own.
[00:55.44]All kinds of big businesses have their odds and ends.
[01:00.94]In a big meal factory,for example,there are countless odds and ends
[01:08.02]--bones and hair,to name only a few.
[01:13.22]The bones are made into glue;the hair is made into rope.
[01:19.22]If these odds and ends were to be looked down upon,
[01:24.31]it would mean a big difference in the amount of the profit of the factory.
[01:30.29] We students have our own odds and ends.
[01:34.78]Take time for instance.
[01:38.57]Every one of us has the same amount of it.
[01:43.15]Our success or failure depends on the use of our time.
[01:48.74]But we use the time more or less in the same way.
[01:53.83]We have our regular day's work:
[01:57.53]certain perilds of classes,or several hours for review.
[02:03.94]And that ends a day.
[02:07.13]But what about its odds and ends--the odd moments
[02:12.24]Many giants in science or art
[02:16.44]have made huge successes for themselves in the world
[02:21.72]mainly because they have made best use of their odd moments.
[02:28.10]Take Tomas A.Edison.
[02:31.68]While he was earning his living by tapping out messages,
[02:36.96]he did not allow his odd moments to slip by.
[02:41.95]He thought,he planned,and he tried between messages.
[02:48.74]And he succeeded in working out a lot of things entirely new to the world.
[02:55.44]By fully using his odd moments,
[02:59.54]he provided valuable wealth for the modern world.
[03:04.73]Think of the odd quarter of an hour in the morning before breakfast,
[03:10.42]the odd half an hour after dinner,
[03:14.33]and the odd moments in the washroom or between classes.
[03:19.73]Remember the chances to read or think
[03:24.12]that come now and again during the day.
[03:28.92]Make full use of them, and you my find,
[03:34.03]as many big businesses have found,
[03:38.33]that the real profit is in using the odds and ends.
