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’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 projectmates 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
projectmate is under pressure.. “
