There was this very interesting discussion I had regarding ‘Donkey Workers’ & ‘Smart Workers’ yesterday evening.
A: Why , what’s the wrong being meticulous & perfectionist?
B: Nothing, just that means you are a ‘Donkey Worker’.
A: Hmm.. what that means, B?
B: Ahh,they go on & on till they reach a level to bring that perfect level. Smart workers are there to steal the lime lite & credit.
A: Hmm, but who is preferred on every day basis?
B:Both complement the balance. And both are happy in their orbits.
Frankly speaking, my personal sympathies lie with donkey workers.Oh God! They look so ‘Cinkara’ & so ‘interestingly’ boring but they enjoy day to day work, they love trying new ways to stay rooted to the everyday realities.And, yes they are to be valued for the authenticity they bring to any organization with their diligence & exhaustive efforts. Are you getting my point?
Rome was not built in a day.
Now smart workers are fun to work with. They are actually supposed to be the driving force. With their ideas, their versatility, they are superb in their own right. I think, I agree that we need them both with their original traits.
