I remember a story from a John Maxwell book that I had read at one point, where he talked about teamwork. (I’m going from memory about the principle he shared) He told a story of a farmer that had a mule pulling a plow in the field, and a nearby neighbor was listening to him yell out, “Come on Besty,come on jack, john, pull frank.” The witnessing neighbor walked over and asked the farmer if he realized that he only had one mule in the field. The farmer answered ” of coarse I know that I have only one mule, but he will work much harder if he thinks he has help.”
It’s a interesting story, but amazing that people work the same way. I would recommend if you are a part of any team, play your part and become an interdependent group. When working as a team 10 x 10= 1000. I remember hearing long ago that individuals grow, but teams explode!!
I hope you and your team, wherever it may be, decide to work together, rather than as individuals.
You can break one pencil easily, but put 20-30 together and its gonna be very hard to break them all at once.
