Determination of effectiveness. From the parables of Aesop

Here's one of the Aesop's fables about goose and golden eggs.


:

The parable tells of a wonderful day when a farmer finds a shining golden egg in his beloved goose's nest. At first he thinks it's somebody's joke. But before throwing the egg, he decides to take it to the jeweler to check it out.

The egg turns out to be pure gold. The peasant cannot even believe in his success. The next day he is even more surprised when everything repeats. After that, every morning, with his eyes wide open, the farmer rushes to the goose and finds the next golden egg. He accumulates incredible wealth. Everything seemed to be a fairytale dream.


But with wealth comes greed and impatience. The farmer can no longer wait all day for the next golden egg. He decides to slaughter the goose and get all the golden eggs at once. But the goose's belly was empty. There were no golden eggs, and there was no way to get them in the future.

Most people see efficiency based on the golden egg paradigm - the more we produce, the more we work, the greater our efficiency. But as the parable shows, real efficiency is a function of two variables: one is the output - the golden egg, the other the resources and resources that enable it to achieve that, in this case the goose.

If we adopt a model of behavior that focuses on the golden eggs and ignores the goose, we will soon be without resources. On the other hand, if we only think of the goose, forgetting the golden eggs, we will be unable to feed either ourselves or the goose.


:
Likewise, when you strive to succeed in life by not saving your health, you have to remember that it will work, but after a while you will not be able to create new results. If you have employees and are constantly using their knowledge and skills without thinking about their professional training, you cannot one day create a new competitive outcome.

:
Find the balance between resource and output and achieve long-term success.
