Pig & Hen Debate


There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstances permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.
- Art Turock, Getting Physical (Doubleday)


One morning, a debate broke out in a farm. The debate was raised between a hen and a pig. The topic of the debate is "Involvement is equal to Commitment". The hen argued, "if someone is willing to get involved, that means he is ready to commit." The pig said, " No, I don’t think so. Getting involved is far from ready to commit."

As they were arguing and it seems no one could totally convince the others, they heard the voice of the farmer’s wife. "Honey, what would you like for you breakfast? Ham or Egg?" The farmer replied, "I prefer ham."

Then the pig told the hen, "You see, when you laid an egg, you are involved in the breakfast. But we are committed to the breakfast when we are eaten as ham."
