A farmer went out one day and bought a brand new stud rooster for his chicken coop.
The new rooster struts over to the old rooster and says, 'OK old fart, time for you to retire.'
The old rooster replies, 'Come on, surely you cannot handle ALL of these chickens.
Look what it has done to me Can't you just let me have the two old hens over in the corner?'
The young rooster says, 'Beat it: You are washed up And I am taking over.'
The old rooster says, 'I tell you what, young stud. I will race you around the farmhouse.
Whoever wins gets the exclusive domain over the entire chicken coop.' The young rooster laughs.
'You know you don't stand a chance, old man. So, just to be fair, I will give you a head start.'
The old rooster takes off running. About 15 seconds later the young rooster takes off running after him. They round the front porch of the farmhouse and the young rooster has closed the gap.
He is only about 5 feet behind the old rooster and gaining fast. The farmer, meanwhile, is sitting in his usual spot on the front porch When he sees the roosters running by.
The Old Roster is squawking And running as hard as he can. The Farmer grabs his shotgun and- BOOM - He blows the young rooster to bits.
The farmer sadly shakes his head and says, 'Damn it.....Third gay rooster I bought this month.' Moral of this Story?...
Don't mess with the older generation!Age, skill, wisdom, and a little treachery Always overcome youth and arrogance!
We think we are smart in front of the experienced peoples, well in a company, there are a lot of executives, they have been gone through all those rainny and stormy days…to some of the young managers, they think that they should not paid that much to be an executive.
Who knows one day, the experienced staff will save the company?
We have seen a lot of clusterfuck and cockamamei economy crisis… 1973, 1987, 2001, 2003 SARS and now the so-called worst economy Tsunami in the past 70 years!
God knows when this economy will one day wake up and rise up or it may take more 2 years…for even 4 years keep a L-shape HS index forever?
Some recent reports generated by US 54 economists’ predictions; washes out extremes.
Fourth quarter: 4.3%
First quarter: 2.5%
Second quarter: 0.5%
Growth in third and fourth quarters!
I really doubt if that is the real situation as all economy blooms must come with solid drives. Either by the Government bailout, massive job opportunities, nation wide constructions programs or some very good news from all countries world wide.
Whilst we are doing all the best to lower the cost, cutting unnecessary indirect expense, improve the manufacturing process, simplifies documentation for order processing, training for employees for preparation for the next bloom, prepare a new product to meet the market or to create new innovative product to bring out new markets!
All these take time, however who knows if we have time or not, I still think that it is time for more vigorus exercise. It is time for get ourselves slimmer, as a lighter body will run faster, consume less calories and react much faster to our competitors.
I have to be paranoid old spook on the old rooster if they could be able to maintain the company profitability in these years as we used to be in past 3 decades!
