Once upon a time a Washerman was bringing up two donkeys.
Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B.
Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the
other. It always tried to pull the washerman's attraction over it by
taking more load and walking fast in front of him.
Innocent Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, irrespective of
the washerman's presence. After a period of time, Washerman started
pressurising Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to
walk fast, got continuous punishment from washerman. It was crying
and told personally to Donkey-A "Dear friend, only we two are here,
why to compete with each other....we can carry equal load at normal
That made Donkey-A all the more energetic and next day it told to
washerman that it can carry more load and even it can run fast also.
Obviously happier washerman looked at Donkey-B.., his BP raised and
he started kicking Donkey-B. Next day with smile, Donkey-A carried
more load and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for
Donkey-B and it couldn't act that way....But the washerman was
frustrated, so he harassed Donkey-B terribly, and finally it fell
Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supremo and happily started carrying
more load with great speed. But now the Load of the Donkey-B is also
being carried by Donkey-A., and still it has to run fast. For some
period it did, finally due to fatigue it got tired and started
feeling the pain. But washerman expected more from Donkey-A. It also
tried best, but couldn't cope up with his owners demand. The
Washerman got angry with Donkey-A also and started harassing to take
more load... Donkey-A was crying for long time and then tried its
best... But it couldn't meet the owner's satisfaction. Finally the
day came when due to frustration the washerman killed Donkey-A and
went for searching some other Donkeys.
Its an endless story....... ...
But the moral of the Story in Corporate and social life is......,
"Think all colleagues are same and that everyone is capable....
Always Share the Load equally..... Don't ever act smart in front of your
Boss and never try for getting overcredit. ..
Don't feel happy when ur colleague is under pressure.. "
It doesn't matter if u r A or B, for the Boss u shall be always
And most importantly, Never Work Hard, Work Smart.... .
People always say you should work smart, the people who I know who work smart are ASSHOLES (pardon the language) who only know how to talk, but when it comes to doing work, will ask other people to do so.
Second, what is the purpose of work. Is it for money or self satisfaction. If you just work for money, why do difficult work like IT or Engineer, you might as well be Hair Stylist or something with less pressure. Just be a Gigolo or Hooker :P
If you are Donkey to your Boss, your boss is Donkey to his Boss.
I am sick with all this corporate wisdom e-mail.
