Weekly Lesson for Living: Parable of the Boiled FrogLessons for Living    
        
      Weekly Lesson: "Parable of the Boiled Frog"

 


      How proactive are we
       
       
      

 

      
      
       "Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for
      change."
      ~ Johann von Goethe
      Life is full of change. It has always been so. However, computers and the
      Internet now speed information around the world so quickly that the
      experience of change is like being caught up in a whirlwind. To
      effectively manage change you must anticipate what is coming next, so you
      can prepare for it. If caught by surprise, you may be in danger of being
      overwhelmed.
      The parable of the boiled frog helps us to understand the key challenge in
      coping with rapid change.
      Suppose you want to boil a frog. How do you do it? You could place the
      frog into a pot of hot water, but as soon as it feels the heat, it will
      jump out. So, what can you do? Put a pot of cool water on the stove and
      then add the frog. Not sensing danger the frog will stay. Next, turn the
      burner on low to slowly heat the water. As the water warms, the frog
      relaxes. The warmth feels good. As the water gets hotter it acts like a
      steam bath draining away energy and deepening the frog's relaxation. The
      frog becomes sleepy and has less and less energy while the water is
      getting hotter and hotter. By the time the frog realizes its danger, the
      water is beginning to boil, and it is too late to take action. There is
      neither time nor energy left to do anything. The frog perishes in the
      boiling water.
      What is the moral of the story? Be vigilant. Don't let unexpected change
      creep up on you. Don't become a "boiled frog." Pay close attention to what
      is going on around you, so that you can notice when the "water" is getting
      hot.
      To be prepared for change you need to be proactive. Don't suppose that
      things will just stay the same.
      Being proactive about change means:
      * Resisting falling into a rut of routine expectation.
      * Being observant and actively searching for what is coming next.
      * Actively monitoring information from as many different sources as
      possible.
      * Listening to your intuition because your gut instinct may provide a
      warning.
      * Taking some action as soon as possible, even if it is risk, because it
      may be riskier to do nothing.
      Knowing far enough in advance that change is on the way allows you to make
      plans. Whether it is a career change, acknowledging difficulty in a
      relationship, or confronting a significant loss, you will be ready when
      the time comes. Knowing that change is on the horizon allows you to
      transform it into an opportunity rather than chance being unexpectedly
      beset by a crisis.
      In the modern whirlwind of change, don't wait until it is too late to act.
      Always be looking ahead. Don't allow yourself to become complacent. Don't
      become a boiled frog. Keep testing the water, so you can leap before you
      boil.
      Give us your feedback on this article or
      suggest a topic for a future "Lesson for Living."

The boiling of Gold is very slow. Enlightened common "cent's is very  rare in deed. Lord keep us strong

A large woman, wearing a sleeveless sundress, walked into a Bar. She raised her right arm, revealing a huge, hairy armpit as she pointed to all the people sitting at the bar and asked, "What man here will buy a lady a drink?" The bar went silent as the patrons tried to ignore her. But down at the end of the bar, an owl-eyed drunk slammed his hand down on the counter and bellowed, "Give the ballerina a drink!" The bartender poured the drink and the woman chugged it down. She turned to the patrons and again pointed around at all of them, revealing the same hairy armpit, and asked, "What man here will buy a lady a drink?" Once again, the same little drunk slapped his money down on the bar and said, "Give the ballerina another drink!" The bartender approached the little drunk and said, "Tell me, it's your business if you want to buy the lady a drink, but why do you keep calling her a ballerina?" The drunk replied, "Any woman who can lift her leg that high has got to be a ballerina."

Thanks for the morning laughs. The first is on my 'Christmas wish list', but I don't think I mailed it in time for Santa to leave in my stocking this year.
