Don’t Be All Things

Published September 15, 2022
But once again, they're stoned by the village people. At a total loss, she thinks, "maybe it's the donkey. Maybe they worship donkeys in this country."

In his book Traction, author Gino Wickman paints detailed pictures to help get messages across on how to focus your business. One in particular stands out, “a mother, her young son, and their donkey are taking a long journey through the countryside. The mother is riding the donkey with the son walking alongside as they enter a village. All of a sudden, the village people gather and start stoning them. The pair run away and manage to escape. The mother is dumbfounded, and as they approach the next village, she thinks, “Maybe they thought it was inappropriate to have the son walk,” so they switch places and prepare to enter. But once again, they’re stoned by the village people. At a total loss, she thinks, “maybe it’s the donkey. Maybe they worship donkeys in this country.” So before entering the next village, they decide to pick up the donkey and carry it, but it proves so heavy that as they cross a bridge, the donkey falls over the side, lands in the river, and drowns. Moral of the story?
