In business, there’s a lot of effort that needs to go into this. I’m a big proponent of partnerships and collaboration. We can do more together as teams than we can do individually. It’s really just that simple, but an important part of this is you can’t be the only one trying. You need to be working as part of a team. You need to be in a group effort.
So often, I see people in business and in life working so hard to accomplish a goal, but others aren’t cooperating with them, others aren’t helping. They’re the only one trying. It becomes more difficult. In fact, in many cases, the weight of the others that aren’t trying to produce results make it even more difficult to accomplish it. Don’t be the only one trying. Make sure you look around and you have others invested in your process. And that you all understand each other and your contributions, and that you’re all working together to do more to get to where you want to go. Don’t be the only one trying.
