Alone or with other people
“How well you do in life and in business depends not only on what you do and how you do it … but on who is doing it with you” (Henry Cloud, The Power of the Other). For the first part of his ministry, Elijah operated as a lone ranger, but during the final phase he had a young friend and successor by his side, Elisha. Jesus supremely modelled the call to work with and mentor others with his disciples. This is a broader principle expressed in the slightly corny statement, “teamwork makes the dream work”.
The more I realise what I’m good at, the more I also find out what I’m NOT good at! Being part of a team is essential!
> Are you functioning as a lone ranger or working with others? How can you grow your investment in other people and your contribution to teams?
