Lessons in management
I have read a management joke some time back and am not sure if it is on the public domains. Nevertheless I decided to blog it here with the hope that some of you might not have read it or heard about it.
A raven was flying south to avoid the winter. On the way the bird was so tired that it fell down to the ground on the snow and lay there freezing. Soon a passing cow happened to dump some dung on the bird. Now the dung actually began to keep the little bird warm and the bird started to sing in joy.
A little while later a cat that was psssing by heard the sound, explored in the dung and dug out the bird. Promptly the cat ate the bird and left contented.
What’s the moral of this story?
1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3. When in deep shit learn to keep quiet!!
