A recipe for strong partnerships: Aligned on why, and complementary on how.

If we share the same vision [why] and we have skills that compliment each other on the execution, we have the potential go far.
That combination [aligned why + complimentary how] works like a charm.
If any one of these ingredients is missing, we may have a challenge.
