Optimized-Horse and goat“Never judge a copy by its cover”, it’s an old saying. But people in general never seems to follow this. It is important in life to analyze the skills of a person closely and then choose the best. This story will reflect our behavior pattern at workplace and life in general. We should try to find the original gem and not stones.

There was a farmer who had a horse and a goat.One day, the horse became ill and he called the veterinarian, who said: – Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. I’ll come back on the 3rd day and if he’s not better, we’re going to have to put him down.

Nearby, the goat listened closely to their conversation. The next day, they gave him the medicine and left. The goat approached the horse and said: – Be strong, my friend.Get up or else they’re going to put you to sleep!

On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left. The goat came back and said:
– Come on buddy, get up or else you’re going to die! Come on, I’ll help you get up.
Let’s go! One, two, three…

On the third day, they came to give him the medicine and the vet said:
– Unfortunately, we’re going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might
spread and infect the other horses. After they left, the goat approached the horse and
said:- Listen pal, it’s now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come on! Get up! Get up!That’s it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three… Good, good. Now faster, come on… Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! Yes! You did it, you’re a champion!!!

All of a sudden, the owner came back, saw the horse running in the field and began
shouting – It’s a miracle! My horse is cured. We must have a grand party. Let’s kill the
goat!!!!

Moral

In the workplace, you have to have an eye of an eagle to reward the person who actually
deserves the merit of success, who may not come to the surface to reveal their brilliance
but are contributing in success, in disguise.
