He asks his son to dig out a stump in the back yard and he tells him that as soon as he's done, he can come in a join the rest of the family for pizza. The son goes digging for about an hour before his father checks on him. The father says, son why aren't you giving it your all? The son says, I am. I am trying really hard. The father goes back in and after another 20 minutes he calls out to his son, Son why aren't you giving it all your strength, you're holding up the whole family? The son says, I'm trying my hardest. Finally the father lets him in on a little secret. Son, he said, you haven't used all your strength. You haven't asked anyone in the house for help.
