I have heard a story of Circus were the Ring Master keeps feeding all his 24 Monkeys twice a day. The first shift of 12 Bananas (Overall 288 pieces) to each monkey before their performance and the second shift of 7 Bananas (Overall 168 pieces) after the performance. It was continued from many years, but one day there was shortage of bananas in every market.
Ring master regularly visits the market and on that day also he went to many shops but he didn’t get the required stock. Somehow he landed up with 168 bananas with a promise from shop owner to deliver the next supply of 288 bananas after the show time. He calculated that he will give 7 bananas to each monkey before their performance and when the shopkeeper will supply the balance 288 bananas, it will be distributed as the show ends. So he took 168 bananas lot and returned to the circus. As the show was going to start he distributed 7-7 bananas to each monkey and went for preparation.
On the next scene, circus auditorium was full with audience, everyone was curious to see monkey’s Ching-Pong performance. Atmosphere was electrified with hooting & Claps, with so much positive energy it was the time to bring monkeys on the stage so ring master without wasting time lifted the cover from the cage.
But what happened next was shocking for everyone, even for the ring master. Every monkey in the cage was sleeping and they didn’t hear anything, either it be DJ sound or the audience’s hooting and claps.
Do you know why ?
It’s just because of the sequences which were followed by Monkey’s brain. Actually they used to get 12 Bananas before their performance and 7 Bananas after performance. So they created a separate database in mind. Their calculation was based on the bananas they get, if Ring master gives 12 Bananas it means they have to perform and if he gives 7 Bananas then its time to rest. This habit were self developed by every monkey. They created a blockage in their thinking and later on sequence became their habit. They agreed on the 12*7 concept of working.
