Justifying Your Price

One day a woman spotted Pablo Picasso in the market and pulled out a piece of paper. “Mr. Picasso,” she said excitedly, “I’m a big fan. Please, could you do a little drawing for me?”

Picasso happily complied and quickly drew a sketch for her on the paper. As he handed it back, he smiled and told her to “take care of it. That will be worth millions one day.”

The woman looked flustered and said, “But it only took you thirty seconds to do it.”

Picasso laughed, “But it has taken me thirty years to be able to do it in thirty seconds.”
