It is my hobby to collect Management stories/ anecdotes for the past 30 years.They not only give you guidelines but also make you think deeply.We have seen three stories in my last article. Now three more. Happy Reading!

Positive Thinking and Negative Thinking!What is the difference between positive thinking and negative thinking:Many years ago two salesmen were sent by a British shoe manufacturer to Africa to investigate and report back on market potential.The first salesman reported back, “There is no potential here – nobody wears shoes.”The second salesman reported back, “There is massive potential here – nobody wears shoes.”

Morals of the story:

A single situation may be viewed in two quite different ways – negatively or positively.A situation’s problems and disadvantages may be really your opportunities and benefits.

Sharing critical info!

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.When she opens the door, there stands Smith, the next-door neighbor.Before she says a word, Smith says, ‘I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.’
After thinking that she has a chance earning $800 within a minute, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Smith, after a few seconds, Smith hands her $800 and leaves.
The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ‘Who was that?’‘It was Smith the next door neighbor,’ she replies.‘Great,’ the husband says, ‘Did he give the $800 he owes me? He promised me that he would give it today!’

Moral of the story:
Do not share any critical information unless you understand the need of opposite person. It may or may not help him but surely won’t help you. Never ever share your secret with a stranger without consulting your husband/elders!

Not everyone is your enemy!

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and she fell to the ground into a large field.
While she was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on her.
As the frozen bird laid there in the pile of cow dung, she began to realize how warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing her out!
She lays there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat hears the bird singing and comes to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug her out and ate her.
Morals of the story:
[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, keep your mouth shut!
