The goldfish, the baby and the cat

A speaker at a session gave this analogy recently and I just loved it.

He said,

Imagine a goldfish swimming in a bowl. The goldfish represents a new idea in the organization. 

The cat is outside, watching the goldfish. The cat wants to kill the goldfish (the idea)

The baby is outside, watching the goldfish. The baby is curious - wants to know more, do more.

All to often, manages end up being the cat, while they should really be the baby!

Beautiful analogy, I thought.
