Lions v Buffalos v Crocodiles: Gunfight at OK Coral
Watch this amazing video “LEONES VS BUFALOS VS COCODRILOS“ of a co-ordinated attack by a pack of lions on a baby buffalo which turns in to a battle of the species with a few big surprises thrown in.
As well as enjoying the video in its own right there are a number of things this video can teach us about competition from mother nature.
For example, here are four thoughts which struck me right off:
1. It may not be the competitor you know about who has the “silver bullet” with your companies name on it
2. The company at the top of the foodchain does not always win.
3. There is a time for team action and a time for individual bravery in every endeavour – the trick is knowing when.
4. Sometimes you need a small fast team and sometimes you just need a big heavy team.
Can you think of any others?
