Working alone is like swimming through molasses.
Once you experience the productivity of a great team
It’s impossible to go back.
You get used to the faster speed of accomplishment
I figured this out programming computers
My first project was too big to do by myself
I needed help. I developed a team. I made mistakes.
I became better at delegating software development
Than developing software myself
That takes a chunk out of your ego.
Until you notice the smiles and excitement
Of the members of your team
So I became an entrepreneur:
I own two businesses
I am a salesman
I am a keynote speaker and leadership coach
I am co-director of a teenage leadership program
I am a Rotarian
I belong to three networking groups
I play softball
I play basketball
I have a new wife and a newer baby
A friend jokes:
“How many hours are in your day?”
It’s no joke.
It’s making a difference
People depend on my sales and management abilities to support their families.
I depend on them to support mine.
I empower them
I will not let them down.
It took me a lot of years to figure out teamwork.
It’s not taught in our schools.
You can still learn it.
With great teams you create
More of an impact
More time with your family
More control over your days
How many hours are in your day?
