Fable(ous) Management Lessons

Lesson 1.

deadtree_crowwatch_md_wht.gif A crow was sitting on a tree doing nothing all day. A rabbit saw the crow and asked him, can I also sit like you and do nothing all day?

The crow answered, “Sure, why not?” So the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit, and ate it.


To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson 2.

“Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replied the bull. “They are parked with nutrients.”
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree. The next day, after eating more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer who promptly shot the turkey out of the tree.

Bullshit might get you to the top, it won’t keep you there.

Lesson 3.

was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!

1. Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3. And when you are in deep shit, keep your mouth shut.
