3 Parrots

Ah-ha Moment

William noticed all three parrots in the pet shop window appeared to be identical, yet each had a different price. Curious he went inside.

“The three parrots in the window look exactly the same but one costs $1,000, one is $2,000 and the other is $3,000. What is the difference?”

The shop owner replied that the $1,000 parrot was able say dozens of words and knew how to send text messages on a cell phone. The $2,000 parrot also knew how to say hundreds of words in complete sentences and was able to send email messages on the store’s computer.

Obviously impressed the man exclaimed, “I never knew parrots could do so much. What does the $3,000 parrot do?”

The answer amazed him, scroll down for the answer.

“We do not really know,” said the shopkeeper, “but the other two call him ‘boss’.”

Far too often you can watch someone at work without being able to guess what they are responsible for. When you work, do others see and respect you because you are in the biggest office, highest perch, or best dressed? Let you work show your talent. Titles do not matter as much as the respect others give you.

Life Lessons:

1. Your can be called, “Boss”, but that doesn’t make you a leader.

2. People place too much value on titles.

3. Let your actions speak for themselves.
