Problem Solvers Survive

Posted on December 5, 2011


Another motivator, courtesy of Aesop’s Fables: The Crow and the Pitcher:

“A Crow perishing with thirst saw a pitcher, and hoping to find water, flew to it with delight. When she reached it, she discovered to her grief that it contained so little water that she could not possibly get at it.

The Crow tried everything she could think of to reach the water, but all her efforts were in vain.

At last the Crow collected as many stones as she could carry and dropped them one by one with her beak into the pitcher, until she brought the water within her reach and thus saved her life.

Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Creative problem-solvers will survive and thrive. Think outside the pitcher.
