A common phenomenon for the team is people who are together and working on a same project in the workplace. We all have heard about a good team which is a result of a good leader leading the team. The team makes company is another thing which is very common to listen. These are very narrow screenshots taken from a very big picture. Basically, Team is all about becoming WE physically and mentally both from I. All of us want to be in Team but always persist to be ME instead of WE. We might have our place in the team physically but most of us always think individually which somehow does not give us the result as desired. Here the finest example we can quote is of a group of geese that flies up in the sky just because of its teamwork. Have you ever observed the fleet of geese and their formation in the sky? They always fly in a group forming a shape of “V”. The reason behind it is that it makes it possible for the whole group to move far getting less tired. Every time a goose swing its wings the geese behind it gets an updraft inertia which in turns helps them out to fly more easily. Each goose comes ahead one by one as the former one gets tired. Through this teamwork, we should learn that just being a part of a team is not enough, you have to give your blood and sweat along with your dedication to getting the highest return out of the teamwork.
It is always said that, if you want to go fast, you should go alone but if you want to go far, you should go together.
We have plenty of examples where the teamwork has won the hearts and it is all because each of the member is just for the team and not for own self.
One of the very live examples of teamwork and the superb result out of it is our INDIAN ARMY PARADE and the stunts they perform in front of the delegates on Indian republic day. You can see the image above where the charm of being WE is apparently visible.
In India, we all are crazy about cricket and the players. We all imitate a number of cricketers and many of them are our role model. But can it be possible for any of the players to play alone? Though one can attract more fans but can never be a part of the cricket fraternity if he is ONLY the one. It is the team that handles all the pressure of winning and losing, not the player.
