“Teamwork. Teamwork is what brings us together today.” – Princess Bride.
Okay, the high priest says marriage but teamwork is what makes a marriage work. Teamwork is what makes everything work. I know I struggle with letting others take charge because I feel as though I am the only one who can get things done. Yet, this semester I have been sitting back slightly and letting my group members do what they are supposed to – and life is so much easier. “People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another” (the Goose Story). In the group where we share a common goal, it is much easier to fly in our formation and take turns being in charge. It also allows group members to sleep soundly, knowing that everything is getting taken care of.
