Corporate Wisdoms @ Akbar & Birbal

These days, people in the corporate world are in a state of paradox with respect to the working style. This paradox can be summed up by these two scenarios-

Story 1... In a jungle, a race competition between a rabbit and a tortoise started. However, at the end of the race, the rabbit lost the competition. Why? Because the tortoise kept on walking all through the way while the fast running rabbit slept in the way. The crux of the story is- “Persistent hard worker wins the race.”

Story 2... A donkey works day and night in a jungle but a lion sleeps in good amount. However, the smart moves of the lion make him the king of the jungle. That means the criterion of working hard didn’t reward the donkey to become the king of the jungle. Hence, this scenario says, “Work smarter rather than harder.”

Reflect upon the above situations. Do you also find yourself in a similar state of fix when you go for a job? Some people say in office to work hard, while some say hard work doesn’t pay you these days. So work smart. Oh God! How should one work in the company or office? Here comes the big confusion!!

Well, the confusion has a simple answer! Both the parameters are individually insufficient. ...

...
