A Riddle For You

I'm currently attending a 2 days soft-skill training entitled : Leading Self Performance for Effective Performance. It is a very interesting training and the consultant, Mr Thangaraj has done a good job in delivered the course effectively. I loved the way he explains things by telling us inspiring stories of people then made us think about the underlying message that he wants to deliver to us. Basically, in order to lead self performance for effectiveness we have to apply the famous Stephen R. Covey's 7 habits into our daily life. :)

Anyway, I would like to share a riddle from my class...

There's a small wooden house with one bedroom and a window. The new owner was not happy with the window as there was not enough light coming in the house through the window. He decided to cut the window. Before that, he measured the window, its 2ft height and 2ft width. After cutting the window, he was satisfied that more lights coming in the house. However, when he measured again the window, the dimension are still the same, 2ft height and 2ft width. How can this happened?


Anyone knows the answer? :)

p/s: a clue...check your assumption. Good luck peeps! ;)
