“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
… Phil Jackson
Power of togetherness by Walsh:
The winter was one of the coldest ever.
Most of the animals couldn’t survive the cold and had died.
But only one kind of animals, the porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
This way they covered and protected themselves but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.
So they had to make a choice; either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.
They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from others.
This way they were able to survive and live longer.
The same applies to us at home and at work.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.
When there is teamwork, togetherness and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.
Unity is strength…
