Another Good Donkey Story

Friday, July 25, 2008

What a coincidence.!!!! I just received another Donkey Story from a friend. This one is also a very good one.

A story for all of us to ponder over our careers and social life............

Once upon a time a Washerman was bringing up two donkeys. Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B. Donkey-A was very energetic and could do better than the other. It always tried to pull the Washerman's attraction over 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 pressurizing Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to walk faster than Donkey-A and got continuous punishment from Washerman. It was crying and discussed 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 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-A and 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 supreme 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; started harassing him to take more load... After some time, Donkey-A still unable to meet its owner satisfaction and started to cry... Finally the day came, the Washerman killed Donkey-A out of frustration and carry on with new Donkeys search!

This is 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 your colleague is under pressure...

It doesn't matter if you are A or B, to the “Washerman” you shall be always DONKEY !!!"
