Life Is A Relay Race

LESSONSYou are not on the debate team anymore. You are running a relay race.

Those on their high school debate team know that winning the point is everything. You wear your opponent down with steadfast logic and sheer grit.  You are like a dog with a bone.

Once you get into a work situation everything changes. The wins come from running more of a relay race where you’re continually passing the baton to someone on your team, and letting them run with your notion.

The bottom line: Pass great ideas along so they can build momentum.  Trust in your team, compromise and share:  together you will get to the finish line first.
