Jonathan Liningstone Seagull

Jonathan Livingstone Seagull ImageRead it somewhere in 2002. My manager gifted this book to me. Highly encouraging book and an entertaining story as well.

Seagull are creatures which are known to fly from shore to food and then back to shore. They can not fly high and their life is limited to do the routine tasks that they are meant to do. This is the story of a seagull who gave importance to flying higher than eating because he enjoyed flying. And he continually strives to fly higher and higher and in turn seeks new heights where no seagull have ever been before.

This fable teaches two important lessons –

(1.) Motivate one’s own self to continuously seek higher purpose
(2.) Continually try to improve and find newer ways to seek greater heights and not be limited by conventional wisdom and knowledge which surrounds you.
