The old men would go hunting every first Friday of the month. This one summer Friday morning they decided to take Malcom along. They had this strategy they described to Malcom - when the hunt dog dumps a Rabbit, the rabbit runs a whole circle and sooner or later it returns to the exact same spot where it was jumped.
Malcom, after understanding the strategy simply position himself such that the Rabbit could not get to that spot without passing him first.
The old men could not stop singing his praise knowing that he had caught 7 rabbits when they had caught only one.
The funny thing is that they never got to know about Malcolm's corollary to their strategy.
This taught Malcom a valuable lesson - if someone is successful in what they are doing especially in the same field as you, they are probably doing something that you aren't.
