A good story for all of us to follow in our careers...

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
speed ".

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 down hopelessly.

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 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 over-credit...
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 DONKEY
And most importantly, dont always try to Work Hard, Work Cleverly.....
