A Story about Lion, Leopard and Wolves
A lion asked a leopard to manager 10 wolves and distribute food for them.
After getting the food, the leopard evenly divided the food into 11 shares, of which one for itself and the other ten for ten wolves.
All of these ten wolves thought they got less than they expected and combined together against the leopard. While it is hard for one wolf to beat the leopard, but if fighting against ten wolves at the same time, the leopard could scarcely make it.
The leopard depressingly offered to resign to the lion. The lion said, “Let me show you how to do it.”
The lion unevenly divided the meat into 11 shares, selected the biggest one, and pretentiously spoken to the wolves, “You yourselves discuss how to allocate these pieces of meat.”
The lion’s word immediately caused an uproar among the wolves. In order to get the bigger one, ten wolves begun to fiercely fight each other but utterly disregarded the fact that they even did not get the equal share of that piece of meat.
The leopard admiringly asked the lion “What is this method?” The lion smiled and said, “Have you head the human’s performance-related pay?”
The lion still unevenly divided the meat into 11 shares, but selected and took away two ones, and then pretentiously spoke to the wolves, “You yourselves discuss how to allocate these pieces of meat.”
Looking at the remaining 9 pieces of meat, the ten wolves snatched them up instantly, with one bite of meat and one bite of the once friendly partner, until the weakest and smallest wolf lay dying on the ground. The leopard admiringly asked the lion, “What is this method?”
The lion smiled and replied, “Have you head the Method of Last-Elimination?”
The lion divided the meat into 2 shares, but took away one of them, and then pretentiously spoke to the wolves, “You yourselves discuss how to allocate the piece of meat.”
Upon hearing the word, the wolves begun to snatch up the only one remaining piece of meat. Finally the strongest wolf beat all other wolves and became the winner. The winning wolf walked to the front of the meat with a swagger and superciliously enjoyed its booty. Only after being stuffed did the winning wolf allow the other wolves to eat. Thence, the winning wolf became the king of the other wolves who obeyed its management and ate the remains of the food in a sequence.
从此狮子只需管理一只狼，只需分配给它食物，其它的再不操心 豹子钦佩的问狮子，这是什么办法？ 狮子微微一笑，听说过竞争上岗吗？……
From then on, the lion only managed one wolf and distributed the food to this wolf without caring about other things any longer. The leopard admiringly asked the lion, “What is this method?” The lion smiled and replied, “Have you head taking up a job through competition?”
The Last Day
The lion occupied the entire piece of meat and asked the wolves to eat grass. Due to the previous battles, the wolves were too weak to fight, and had to resign themselves to obeying the lion’s order.
The leopard admiringly asked the lion, “What is this method?” The lion smiled and replied, “Have you head the harmonious society?”
