A bird in the hand worth two in the bush, how true is the above phrase if one introspect the same from the corporate angle. The belief on the above ‘phrase’ only, holding and binding many talented employees from taking several firm decisions in their life. They never ever dare to search what is there in the bush when they one in the hand.
The search in the bush need not be after loosing the bird in the hand nor with a belief that what is there in the bush is not worthier than the bird in the hand. The curiosity to see what is there only makes man to win. Unfortunately many corporate employees behave the same way as most animals do. When a hunt is found, all the predators revolve around the kill to have their share. If they move away from the kill, they may able to hunt another prey and can eat peacefully.
When a pride of lions while eating a kill, other predatory animals like fox, jackal, hyena, wild dog etc., can hunt some other animals and also can eat the same without the fear of lions snatching their kill. But these animals ever appear to think that way. The story is same for herbivores also. They also love to move as heard in general and when they are in a heard will easily get noticed by their predators.
Most animals love to fight for a small loaf of the bread and remain half filled and that is how they love to live their life.
Most corporate employees are no way different from many of the animals in the jungle. They never allow or entertain a possibility of finding a better career outside their corporate. Largely, because they believe that the life in other corporate will be no way better than the organization they live. They usually love to ‘demean’ and ‘belittle’ all their merits, talents and capabilities and group around the ‘kill’ of some other animals.
Both, the animals and most of the corporate man may be thinking that a ‘prey’ in the sight is better than going for a hunt. The fear or lack of effort and initiatives or lack of trust couples with lack of belief on ones capability only makes the people not to take bold and brave decisions?
A pack of hyena or fox or wolf always moves around a kill. Perhaps the lions would have killed the prey. These smaller predators hope that ones the lions have finished their meal; they can eat and settle with the what ever is left out. When there is no kill in the sight, these animals successfully hunt and meet their hunger.
It is for the corporate man to ponder to understand whether he thinks and lives like animals. Achievements become easier through ones own capabilities and talents than expecting a share of others hard work. Animals in the jungle have a reason to behave so. They have limited resources. But for the corporate man, opportunities are unlimited provided they believe in the self.
Believe that a bird in the hand is better as also are the birds in the bush.
