It’s a fine sunny day in the forest and a rabit is sitting outside his burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a fox, out for a walk.
Fox: “What are you working on?”
Rabbit: “My thesis.”
Fox:”Hmm… what is it about?”
Rabbit: “Oh, I’m writing about how rabbits eat foxes.”
Fox:” That’s ridiculous! Any fool knows that rabbits don’t eat foxes!”
Rabbit: “Come with me and I’ll show you!”
They both disappear into the rabbit’s burrow. After few minutes, gnawing on a fox bone, the rabbit returns to his typewriter and resumes typing.
Soon a wolf comes alsong and stops to watch the hardworking rabbit.
Wolf: “What are you working on?”
Rabbit: “I am dooing a thesis on how rabbits eat wolves.”
Wolf:”You don’t expect to get such rubbis published, do you?”
Rabbit:”No problem. Do you want to see why?”
The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again the rabbit returns by himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to typing.
Finally a bear comes along and asks, “What are you doing?”
Rabbit: “I’m doing a thesis and how rabbits eat bears.”
Bear: “Well that’s absurd!”
Rabbit: “Come into my home and I’ll show you”
Scen: As they enter the burrow, the rabit intorduces the bear to the lion.
Moral: It does not matter how silly your thesis topic is; what matters is whom you have a sa supervisor.
Management Lesson in the context of the working world: IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW BAD YOUR PERFORMANCE IS; WHAT MATTERS IS WHETHER YOUR BOSS LIKES YOU OR NOT.
