Do you remember a time in your life where you could scream being the lone wolf at the top of your lungs? Are you still living that time of your life being the lone wolf? I remember mine. Sometimes I still play that part in life. It’s a bad habit, but it’s part of who I am.
It doesn’t matter anyway, because at the end of it all, we learn the important lesson that no one is an island. It may come before your time or it may come when you least expect it. Either way, for most of us, we learn that lesson the hard way. The kind of lessons that forces us to work with others despite our prejudices. Still, some of us learn and some are still too stubborn to look beyond what life teaches us and that can be problematic.
Try this out for size though, the next time you’re going to be working with others, take the back seat if you’re used to being in charge or take charge if you’re used to taking the back seat. Listen to what people have to say and ask what you don’t understand. Teamwork is more than just a bunch of people working together, it’s a bunch of people forming an interactive relationship with one another. It takes time for the relationship to work, but when it does everyone benefits more than they would being the solitary wolf.
Come to think of it, it’s kinda like blogging in a community. Maybe that’s easy enough to understand. So try it out for size. Start lending your hand where you least expect it. I don’t think it’s going to be that hard to do something different, do you?
