In this rapidly evolving virtual world and working environments, we must not forget our human needs and our desire to develop our own life pathway successfully and happily.
The Taoist saying that
“…the journey we go on in life is our reward”
has been substantially reinforced by Robert Louis Stevenson who said
"…. to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labour."
stressing to us, “how” we undertake our life journey is the true reward for each of us. Helen Keller reinforced this reflecting that
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
So, to achieve our aspirations we need a route which enables us to be happy, accomplished and avoid regret as much as possible. The route of working together as a team .. Teamwork
Don’t take my word for it! Just look at how a sample of experts recognise the huge value of Teamwork, embracing each member’s ability to work together towards a shared concept and aspirations…
Whichever quote you like the best, it is evident that everyone can be happier, achieve more and avoid disappointment by … working together as one team, rather than working on one’s own.
