The Original Version
There was once a man who had a dog, the dog was very affectionate to him and would jump in joy when its master is around. The dog used to cuddle, embrace, jump on him and at times lick its master's face in joy. The man also had a donkey that did helped him carry the load. The master used to beat the donkey when it does not carry the load properly. One day, it saw the dog doing his playful and joyous tricks like jumping, embracing its master. On seeing this, the donkey decided, if it too behaved like the dog like showing affection by jumping, putting its leg over the master and licking his face in joy, the master would feel happy and will not beat it. So one fine day, the donkey found its master alone and its joy knew no bounds that it went to its master, jump on him and started licking his face to show his affection. But the master grew angry and beat the donkey heavily. From then on the donkey realized that its cannot do what the dog does and to avoid the beating it has to work properly.
The Noble Version
The man had a dog and a donkey. The dog as said before showed its affection by embracing, licking its master's face and so on. The donkey wanting to do the same to please its master, found its master alone. Went near him and showed its affection to its master in the same manner as the dog. The man took pity on the donkey, understood that it too can show affection, stopped beating it and treated equally like the dog. And they lived on together like this happily every after. Happy Ending....
The IT Version
The man had a dog and a donkey. The dog as said before showed its affection by embracing, licking its master's face and so on. The donkey wanting to do the same to please its master, found its master alone. Went near him and showed its affection to its master in the same manner as the dog. The master grew vicious, went to the dog and beat the shit out of the dog and shouted "Had it not been for you jumping on me, the donkey would have stayed where it should"
This is the plight of all the top performers/contributors like the dog. They are curtailed of their privileges and freedom, just because of the wrong doings or inefficiency of some jackass like the donkey. It is not that the organizations cannot be paranoid but they have to be very careful in taking measures, as it could drive away the enthusiasm and spirits of the top contributors - dogs.
