“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”
Once there was a countrywoman and her three chickens. While the three chickens were laying their eggs into the same shared nest, the countrywoman found only two new eggs in the nest every day.
So, she started to watch her hens. And after a while evidence seemed to be clear:
Every day always the same two chicken left the nest gaggling loudly. The third one, also always the same, quietly stole off.
So, the countrywoman quickly came to an inevitable decision … and the modest chicken ended up in the stockpot.
But, from the next day on – to her very surprise – there was just one egg in the nest every day!
Now, what are the conclusions of this story:
- Some gaggle loudly even without having performed and achieved.
- Achieving without gaggling can kill!
