Lesson One

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, 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 below the eagle 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.

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 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 it actually gave
him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The
next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second
branch. Finally after a fourth night, 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
won't 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 large 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 cow dung, he began to realize
how warm he 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 shits on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth

This ends your two minute management course.
