Consejos vendo, y para mí no tengo
Via Murali Nandigama, just wanted to share this piece of ancient wisdom that one may find useful when asking for an advise from others:
One day, a villager in India goes to the priest/village-doctor and says: “My cows are not happy and not giving as much milk as they used to… please give me an advise as to what to do”.
The priest gives him a medicine and says: “Mix it in the animal feed and your problem would be solved. See me again in a week”.
Next week, the villager comes back more depressed… “My cows are not only not giving milk but they are sick now… please give me an advise what should I do!!”.
The priest goes into his prayer room, meditates and comes back with a different medicine. “Now… go back and feed only this medicine to your herd. And come back in a week’s time to give me the report”.
This time the villager comes back in three days, crying and shaking… “My cows are dying!! I lost many cows… please give me any idea how to save my cows!!!”.
This time the priest sits silently for a while… looks straight into the eyes of the villager… and says, “Ideas I got many… how many cows you got?”.
Somehow related, also via Murali Nandigama: Why you should NEVER ask for metrics?
God bless you for sharing wisdom!
