Pencils | Cypress Semiconductor
If you look at your standard #2 yellow pencil you will notice that it comes with a eraser. This means that it is assumed you are going to make the occasional mistake. It is not large enough for a lot of mistakes but a few it can handle. If you don t use the eraser then maybe you re one of those people that doesn t make mistakes. Or maybe you're one of those people that doesn' t try anything new.
Note that the pencil is about 3% eraser, 77% useable pencil, and 20% overhead. Remember this the next time you are told you should work smarter, not harder. (I have always hated that term.) Chances are your company's overhead far exceeds your inefficiencies.
Of course, a pencil is only an eraser on a stick, until you sharpen it.
