Lessons from Squirrels

Here are two great little ‘squirrel movies’, each with a message. :)

What persistence! This wee squirrel is a lovely reminder not to give up but keep trying until we reach our goals. And it’s also a reminder not to scorn a helping hand when one is offered!

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’. (Mary Anne Radmacher)

The second video was made as a commercial for EDS, an IT company.  It’s very amusing, but also reminds us that big is not always necessarily the best. The small and nimble can be just as powerful.

Or, as Anita Roddick of The Body Shop once said:

If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.
