Superior Sales: How Cold Is Your Winter?
It was autumn, and the Native Americans on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was a new chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was going to be. So, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared.
But he was also a practical leader. After a few days he decided to call the National Weather Service. He asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed," the meteorologist at the weather service responded.
