Once upon a time a washer man had two donkeys, A and B.
A always 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 walked normally, irrespective of the washer man`s presence. After a period of time the washer man started prodding Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A.
But Donkey-B could not and hence he was punished often.
Utterly exhausted it began to cry and asked Donkey-A, “Dear friend, There are only two of us here, why to compete with each other….we can carry equal load at normal speed “.
But that only made Donkey-A all the more energetic.
Next day it told to washer man that it can carry more load and even it can run fast. The washer man punished Donkey-B for its inability.
This continued for days until Donkey-B and finally it fell down hopelessly.
Donkey-A feeling proud of himself started carrying more load with great speed. But soon he realized that he had to carry the load of Donkey-B too and also it had to run fast.
He managed to do so for sometime but finally succumbed to harassment and fatigue.
Being smart is good. But being unnecessarily over smart can lead to trouble.
