Fable of the Bird plus 6 Universal Truths

FOLLOW: Commentary
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!

2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3. Most important- when you’re in deep shit, keep your mouth shut.

Japanese vs. American management style

Two teams of American and Japanese corporations have a boat race. On the big day the Japanese win by a mile.
The discouraged Americans hire a consulting firm to investigate the problem. The findings are that the Japanese team had eight people rowing and one person steering while the American team had one rower and eight people steering. Based on these results, the American team is completely reorganized to include four steering managers, four steering area managers and a new performance review system for the person rowing the boat to provide work incentive.
The following year the Japanese win again, so the Americans lay off the rower for poor performance and give the manager a bonus for discovering the problem.
