I am just reading “Screw It, Let’s do It, Lessons in Life” by Richard Branson a quick read book which I will finish in a day and is full of good stuff including the old saying about the cow which so fits with our ethos of “take action”.
I loved the image and it sums up how some people act, expecting others to make the first move even if they will be the beneficiary. Sometimes I feel like the cow when I am trying to buy something, I’m expected to do all the work and when I get it wrong metaphorically and kick the bucket over spilling the milk then the company is annoyed and even ‘punishes’ me with additional charges even if it is just to call their helpline. A classic example has been budget airlines though they are begining to change.
I am now looking at my life and reviewing in which areas I am waiting for cows to reverse towards me – so I can take action. Have you got any cows you’re waiting for?
