Bit #21: Be part of the Team

Little Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 21: TEAMWORK!

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. ~Henry Ford

We've all heard the saying "there is no I in team." How true!

Working as part of a team will be something you will be required to do your entire life: school projects, school plays, clubs, organizations, sports teams, work department teams, spousal/parenting teams, etc.

The only way to be truly successful and "climb the ladder" in all the roles of our crazy lives, we must be an active and willing team worker and plater. It takes constant work and attention when working in a team. So many times I have thought "this would be so much easier if I did it myself" or "I should do this by myself," but then we are always thrown in to team work situations and we must adapt. Working in teams can be a wonderful experience. People bring different view and areas of expertise to the table.

Be sure that you are looking within and evaluating your own skills as a team player and worker...you want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Be a good and gracious member of all teams you are on. Everyone will appreciate it!

"No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it." ~H.E. Luccock
