#ManagementGyan : Fighting With Pigs
"Lord Bernard Shaw, how much I love you"!
I know it has been quite some time but I am back with my #ManagementGyan of the Day! It is called- Fighting with Pigs.
Err I mean you should not get in a fight with pig/s. I will tell you why. Before that take a deep breath, release and read on.
Fighting with Pigs
Do not get in fights with pigs. Why?
1) They have no business/productivity.
2) They love throwing mud/poop/dirt on self and others
3) Mud Slinging comforts their inferiority complex
4) Lack competency to prove a point via merit
5) Waste of precious productive time
6) Pigs are not loyal or Royals
7) It aims to be Destructive & not Constructive
What should you do when a pig deliberately drags you in a fight?
Firstly, do not react but calmly respond. If that does not help and you see the pig[s] continued machination towards mud slinging, drop the pig there in its own shit and move on. Remember, if you have worked towards achieving your goal meticulously and sincerely, you cannot let a pig ruin it for you. Let them try. For pigs will always try to induce you in mud slinging. After all, that is all they know - eating shit and giving the shit. They are the losers who instead of taking their failure as learning opportunity and work with tenacity to succeed, indulge in pulling others down. Take a "me" moment, interrogate yourself. If you are at equal faults, respond calmly towards a resolution. If you are not and it is clear that the pig is more of type 3 [bullets above], do not bother to react. You see, not all mud baths are therapeutic :)
There is a thing about achievers. They do not pull down others to go up. They rather work harder & set new records. Remember success through merit is the biggest revenge.
So, next time, when a pig or herd of pigs invite/entice/bully you for a mud slinging, simply smile and ignore. Remember that big, constructive goal that you may want to achieve. Pull your focus towards that and work to hone your skills.
Let the pigs be. Instead, adopt a dog or a goldfish or a bird that is a joy to see, and a joy to be with!
