I just recieved this forward from whatsapp:
Great Lesson for everyone to learn from this Fish Theory
A country always loved fresh fish, but the water close to the country has not held many fish for decades.
So to feed the population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.
The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish.
If the return trip took more time, the fish were no longer fresh.
To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats.
They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea.
Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.
However, people could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like the taste of frozen fish.
The frozen fish brought a lower price.
So, fishing companies installed fish tanks.
They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin.
After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste.
The fishing industry faced an impending crisis!
But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to the country.
How did they manage...?
To keep the fish tasting fresh the fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks, but with a small shark?
The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move.
The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!
Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull....?
Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active.
If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy.
Your challenges keep you energized.
Don’t create Success and revel in it in a state of inertia.
You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference.

On a lighter note:
I can relate this to, we are all fishes in the same pond who gets motivated to stay fresh( productive) inorder to satisfy the person(your organization)who is going to eat us fresh for satisfying his taste buds(money).
