A turkey was chatting with the 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 my droppings? They’re packed with nutrients”, replied the bull.
The turkey pecked at a lump of shit and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more shit, he reached the second branch. Finally, on the fourth day, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
Soon, he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.
Management Lesson: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.
