“The Lone Wolf Dies, But The Pack Survives”
Have you seen the newest trailer for The Game of Thrones?
Honestly, I was all set to be productive this morning, but then they released this video that made me think about the following topic what I want to share with you today.
Many battles to come.
Not just in the series, but in your business as well.
It’s not what you wanted to hear, eh?
But the winter is coming.
And it is difficult to remain alive.
You need a team with supportive people at your side.
Humans aren’t wired to function as an individual.
Humans are wired to work as part of a group.
As Michael Glauser mentioned in The Main Street Entrepreneur, professional cyclist stay close to each other and form a pace line to ride farther, faster, and more efficiently. The geese in the back of the “V” can reduce their wind resistance as well.
You can never go as far as fast as a well-calibrated team.
You can go farther and faster when you work together.
But, convincing people to join is no easy task.
So, you need a vivid imagination — and a common enemy — that inspires others to get on board and come along for your journey. You have to show them that you have the same passion and a shared picture of the future. You have to inspire people to move beyond their own selfish desires and contribute to a cause bigger than them.
This is essential, because alone you never get other people’s ideas and skills.
Do what Kings do.
Build an army.
