A river serves all the people by its usefulness for boats to navigate on them to transport a variety of goods and people to a variety of destinations. The rivers would not exist if it were not for the humblest of sources; little tributaries and streams that feed into the larger rivers. These humble streams come from a lake, a spring, a marsh, a bog, underground springs or a glacier. The river has many sources.
The Mississippi River starts from a lake in Minnesota, it is the fourth longest river. The Nile the longest river in the world are fed by two streams, these tributaries feed into a lake and then the Nile is formed. These and other very important rivers, for life, are fed by these streams. The Amazon River which has the largest drainage basin in the world, has its beginning source from a glacial stream in the Peruvian Andes. These beginnings of the mighty and powerful rivers are a lesson in life.
Nature is always a good teacher. EVERYONE IS OF VALUE, we cannot function without the streams, the springs, the glaciers within the organization. Everyone can and should contribute to the progress of any company. The influential elite group of individuals of any organization should open the doors of collaboration with the humble tributaries. To compete we should be different, we should utilize our modest tributaries.
No one person, no one elite group has all the answers. We must open the doors and let the rivers flow from its source. The people, the tributaries, EVERYONE IS OF VALUE.
Like a river of value work through a tributary.
