Law of Significance & The Big Picture

The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork Workbook: Embrace Them and Empower Your TeamThe 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork: Embrace Them and Empower Your Team [17 INDISPUTABLE LAWS OF TE -OS]Learn from the sharing session yesterday about the first 2 Laws of Teamwork from John C Maxwell, namely Law of Significance and Law of The Big Picture. In fact, I find it pretty enlightening, it's a small principle and most of us knows it just that not many of us implements it.

Like the Law of Significance: One is too small a number to achieve greatness. Well, it reminds me of the single chopstick that breaks easily and the multiple chopsticks bundle that's harder to break. It all boils down to unity is power. But still at times, I still feel like doing things alone, 'cos it's easier to manage and implements but it's only when there's a team behind you where everyone plays the small little parts of it and all these add together to be something bigger and stronger. With each one motivating the other to persist on and move forward.

And the Law of The Big Picture: The goal is more important than the role. An example is when everyone wants to perform the better role, e.g. in a play, everyone fights for the leading role, but it's when some plays the lead and some plays the complementing role that the play as the big picture itself can be successful. Never look down on the little role that one plays in life is the key I felt.

I would like to thank Keith for inviting me and sharing with us the idea. :)
