Doing work that truly matters requires a team.

If you going to do work that is very impactful, you cannot do it alone. You are going to need a team of people to work.

Who are your team members?

What relevant skills are they bringing?

Do they work as a team?

Here is what I have learned about teams and self-interest:

The strength of a team is proportional to the percentage of folks within the team who would put the team’s interest ahead of their own.

When that percentage is less than 50%, it is a disaster.

When folks put their own self-interest ahead of the interest of the team, that team is not sustainable.

Conversely, when it exceeds 80%, you are generally looking at greatness. When folks do what is in the best interest of team first, magic happens.
