The Story Content of Repairing Lost Sheep
Once upon a time, a man raised a sheep pen. One morning, he was going out to graze sheep and found that there was one missing sheep pen. The sheep pen had a hole in it. At night, the wolf came in and took the sheep away.
The neighbour advised him, "Repair the sheepfold and plug the hole!"
He said, "The sheep have been lost. What's the reason for repairing the sheepfold?" He did not accept the advice of his neighbours.
The next morning, he was going out to graze sheep. When he looked in the sheepfold, he found another sheep was missing. The wolf came in again from the hole and took the sheep away.
He regretted not accepting his neighbour's advice, so he quickly blocked the hole and repaired the sheepfold firmly. Since then, his sheep have never been stolen by wolves.
Little Story: It's not too late for a sheep to be picked up by a wolf to mend the sheepfold because of the vacancy in the sheepfold. It's a metaphor that if something goes wrong, we can find a way to remedy it so as to prevent further losses.
This article is selected from "Warring States Policy Chuce IV". It shows that if sheep are lost and the sheepfold is mended, the rest of the sheep will not be lost again.
The Reasons of Repairing the Lost Sheep
It's not too late to mend the sheep's pen after the sheep have escaped. It's not too late to figure out how to remedy the problem and prevent further losses. This story tells us two things: first, don't take a chance on the mistakes that exist, and take it for granted that the mistakes are only accidents, and will not happen again. Second, correct the mistakes immediately when you know them, and don't make mistakes again and again. Only in this way can greater losses be prevented.
