What are colleagues? By definition colleagues are persons working in the same work environment and are always ready to help each other and help wherever needed.
However, this drawing shows how peers can be at work.
The drawing consists of three parts: the central part (the reality), the upper section (colleague 1) and the lower part (colleague 2).
The central part illustrates that peers are equal, but one works 4 times more than the other at work. So ‘W’ (the W stands for work performance) does not equal ‘W’ and “L”(L stands for equal pay) equals “L”. One works 4 times more than the other, so the colleagues are not equal, because one is doing the work and the other is doing little or nothing.
The upper part shows two strong closed hands around two heavy weights and a rapid heartbeat. The work of this colleague is heavy (weights) and the rapid heartbeat stands for a lot more STRESS. The lightning strikes stand for the attraction of additional energy to do the work of all the others together.
The lower section shows two weaker hands and open fingers that release feathers and a slower heartbeat. The work of this colleague is slow (the feathers) and the slow heart beat stands for peace and serenity, NO STRESS. The clouds reinforce this fact, because this colleague lives in the clouds of bliss doing almost nothing, without stress and leaving all the work for the other, quietly thinking about how he is going to spend his time.
As a result: one colleague works like crazy under stress while the other enjoys doing nothing.
