    Management Lessons
    > A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit
    > saw
    > the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all
    > day
    > long?"
    > 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.
    > Management Lesson: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be
    > sitting very, very high up.
    > A turkey was chatting with a bull. I would love to be able to get to
    > the top
    > of the tree, sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."
    > "Well, why
    > don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're
    > packed
    > with nutrients." The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that
    > it
    > actually gave him enough strength to reach the top of the tree. Soon
    > he
    > was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the
    > tree...
    > Management Lesson: Bullcrap might get you to the top, but it won't
    > keep
    > you there.
    > A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the
    > bird
    > froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying
    > there, a
    > cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there
    > in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it 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.
    > Management Lesson:
    > 1) Not everyone who craps on you is your enemy.
    > 2) Not everyone who gets you out of crap is your friend
    > 3) And, when you're in deep doo doo, keep your mouth shut
