The Eye of Communication

Sometimes, an old circulating message is not a mere ’forward’, it actually does carry a point… An old blind man was sitting on a busy street begging for money. On a cardboard sign, he had written: 'Blind - Please help'. However, no one was giving him any money. A young advertising writer walked past and saw the blind man with his sign and the empty(..)

The Tidy Ways

A young priest was in charge of the garden within a famous Zen temple. Next to this temple there was a smaller temple where lived an old Zen master.  Once the priest was expecting special guests in the evening.  So he woke up early that day and spent a long time carefully raking up and arranging all the dry autumn leaves.

The Ducky Tales

Ducks are renowned for their waterproof feathers, and it’s amazing to watch them as they splash around.  The water forms beads on their back and rolls off in a no-nonsense fashion back into the pond.   Lesson?  A leader shouldn’t let personal problems weigh and distract from the goals. Ducks appear to glide smoothly along the surface of the water(..)

A Boy, a Monkey, and the Nuts

Once a poor kid was given an assignment by a teacher on what he wanted to be when he grew up.   The kid did not hesitate for a minute and wrote a seven-page paper about his aim to be the owner of a horse ranch. He covered many details, including an exhaustive plan of the house and the stables. The teacher returned his paper with a big “F”, and then(..)

The Derailed Express

In 1850 it took the average piece of mail five weeks to travel from Missouri to California. This was frustrating, since in 1848 somebody had discovered gold in the California hills and the wild rush was on. America was moving west and needed a much more efficient, streamlined way to communicate with its West Coast. The Pony Express was the answer. Four(..)

To Ease, or Not to Ease!

A little boy brought home a cocoon from a picnic in the woods. He put the cocoon in his garden, and watched it daily in fascination, awaiting it to crack and a beautiful butterfly to emerge! However, the cocoon was too exposed—the urban setting did not protect it from wind, water, and sun. As it struggled to survive, one day a crow scooped down and(..)

The Uncalculated Steps

There was once a group of tiny frogs who arranged a competition.  Their goal was to climb the ladder that was resting against the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race.  The race began. No one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements such as:(..)

The Blunt Edge

Once there was a group of men—a young, hot-blooded guy and a bunch of old folks. Their job was to chop down trees in the jungle.  The young chap was very hard working. He always continued to work through his break time and often complained that the older folk were wasting time, taking breaks throughout the day to drink and chat. As time went by, this(..)
