“I DON’T WANT TO APPROACH THE PROJECT BIASED”February 12, 2023
… Who couldn’t laugh?
Once upon a time there was a queen snail who ruled over other animals.
One day the snail was sad, very sad even.
The other animals knew that if she didn’t laugh, no decisions would be made and the wildlife would stand still. They couldn’t afford their world to stand still.
So they gathered to discuss how to make the snail laugh.
So the only solution could only be to cheer up the snail with a joke.
They quickly agreed that every animal should think about making the snail laugh. Since they wanted each animal to make a great effort, they also agreed on a consequence: If the joke is not good enough, the animal that was just about to jump directly into the intended pit voluntarily.
The first brave animal was the goose, which would sacrifice everything for its queen. She was sure that with her sounds, flying abilities and movements she could make the snail laugh right away.
When, after what felt like a minute, the snail sat unchanged, the goose accepted its fate and fell into the pit.
Second was the giraffe, who, with her long neck and long legs, was sure that she would manage to make the snail laugh with her wit.
When she still did not move, she was also forced to fall into the pit.
Third came a male deer. Partly trembling, partly confident, he also wanted to do his best. After all, he had something special that his previous colleagues lacked, namely antlers. While he slowly came on stage and secretly said goodbye to his life, the snail began to laugh.
The laughter was unmistakable, loud and unstoppable, so he took courage to ask:
“Why are you laughing, I haven’t even started yet”. He waited excitedly for the answer, fearing that the snail would laugh at him.
Then the snail: “The joke of the goose, it was so good”
What you learn from it is up to you. It is always exciting for me to learn the most diverse insights from listeners.
In connection with diversity, I see here that I need patience, with myself and with others:
📍In order not to give up quickly
📍In order not to give up on others quickly: everyone has their own pace and comprehension
📍 To better understand others before making such drastic decisions
📍 In order not to evaluate quickly
📍 In order to get to the root cause of a “rejection” or similar, for suitable solutions
And you? What do you learn from this story?
