Five Men who Got Lost in the Forest


Five men got lost in a vast forest.
They tried to find their way out.
The first man said, “I will follow my intuition and go left.”
The second man said, “I will go right. I have a strong feeling about this.”
The third man said, “I think I will walk back the same path we came. This should be the safest option.” The fourth man said: “I think we should keep walking ahead, so I will go straight. I am sure this forest will end and I will find a village or a farm to ask for directions.”
The fifth man said, “I don’t know what to do. I think I will climb up this tall tree and take a better look around before I make up my mind.”
So the fifth man did. While he was climbing, the other four men scattered towards their own directions. The fifth man now could see from above what was the shortest way to a village. He thought that the others should not have chosen different paths. He was wrong, though.
Each man chose his own path and gained a different experience.
The man who went left, found a long path but in the end, this led him to the town. The man who went right, had to fight a pack of wolves, but this way he learned how to survive in the forest. The man who went back, met another team of hikers and he made new friends. The man who went straight, found indeed a farm and was hosted by the family for a couple of days before leaving for the village.”
