A little refresher course in management is often worth the time.


Lesson One

An eagle was sitting resting on a tree, doing nothing.
A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him "Can I also sit like you and do
nothing ?"
The eagle answered ;"Sure why not." So the rabbit sat on the ground beneath
and rested.
All of a sudden , a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Management Lesson:
To be sitting doing nothing, you must be sitting very , very high up.

Lesson Two:

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the
top of that tree, "
sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."
"Well why dont you nibble on
some of my droppings ." replied the bull. "They are packed with nutriants."
The turkey pecked at the lump of dung, and found it actually gave him
enough strenght to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after the fourth day the turkey was proudly perched at the top of
the tree.
He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Management Lesson:
Bull shit might get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.

Lesson Three:

A little bird was flying south for the winter.It was so cold the bird froze
and fell to the ground into a field.
While he was lying there a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of dung he began to realise how
warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing him
out !.
He laid 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.

Management Lesson:
[1] Not everybody that shits on you is your enemy.
[2] Not everybody who gets you out of the shit is your friend.
[3] When you are in deep shit it is best to keep your mouth shut.

This ends the three minute management course.
