FABLE 067: Two travelers are walking along a path and come across an axe. One of the travelers says, “I found an axe!” But his partner says, “No, we found an axe.” Soon, the owner of the axe starts pursuing them, and the one who picked up the axe said, “Oh no, we are doomed!” But his companion replied, “No, you are doomed.”
This fable is all about us as business partners. Share in the risk, share in the reward — that’s the moral of partnership. You have to take the trying times with the good times; you’re in it together.
