Happy Monday my Friends,
As we go through our daily lives, whether at home or at work, we may have had to depend on one another at one time or another so today’s message is about team work and the success that it brings.
PLAYING AS A TEAM
“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” (Babe Ruth)
We value individual skills, celebrating them with praise, awards, and money. But few achievements are entirely the work of a single individual. Most involve collaboration to some degree. Personal success depends not only on individual performance, but on the support of colleagues, friends and family. Learning how to use one’s individual skills to work well in a group is a lifelong challenge. Luckily, it’s also an enjoyable challenge. We can be proud when we have a personal success, but there’s something especially wonderful about being part of a team that’s successful.
NOTE TO SELF:
I know how much I depend on the efforts and talents of those I work and play with.(Linda Picone)
The reason why the universe is eternal is that it does not live for itself; it gives life to others as it transforms. (Lao Tzu)
There is no such thing as a “self-made” person…Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and out thoughts, as well as our success. (George Matthew Adams)
The best leaders of all are the ones the people do not know exist. They turn to each other and say we did it ourselves. (Zen aphorism)
We at QSPAC have always considered ourselves family, friends and co-workers. You may have received thanks, or praise for a job well done. But did we not get some type of assistance or guidance from a co-worker in accomplishing the task? We do need each other and should be able to count on each other because only in working together can we become the strong, successful company we intend it to be.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week
