Who Killed the Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs?

P-PC Balance stands for “Production – Production Capability” Balance, a term which I got to know after reading the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change“.

We all have heard of “The goose that laid the golden egg” story, where the man gets a golden egg every day from the goose. In this story the egg is Production and the goose is Production Capability. Well, we know what happened in the end of the story and that is exactly what happens in the real life scenarios too. It’s funny how we have forgotten the lesson we have learned from the story and seldom implement it in the real life.


The author talks about taking care of “Production Capability” and shares by various examples on how often we neglect the goose in real life. Taking time out to nurture the relationship is an activity that enhances “Production Capability” whether it is business or personal life it always does.

In any organization, we all know what Production is and all of our focus and energy is in Production but the organizations really thrive only after taking care of its “Production Capability” which is the people who are working there and that is achieved only by building a great relationship with the people who are working together.
