“No two on earth in all things can agree. All have some daring singularity.”


Have you ever thought...how it is to be a team or even be a team player? We often, talks so many things about this...infact so many seminars and learning sessions takes place..in the corporate world...just to know that...meeting of minds is what one lacks..:)

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” ~ Henry Ford

It is exactly how one bridges with relationships...similarly in projects..no matter how big team or how much authority one has...it all has to end up at one point...where meeting of minds exists..!!!

“The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands.”

A project can go so smooth if there are people to understand the point of view and the root cause of it...instead of proving who's work is going to be rewarded ....:)

“Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.”

One thing is for sure...when things are not taken at a matured level then no one pays attention or else...if one does then it takes to an extreme end of discussion where in becomes an ego matter :)

“One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.” ~ G.K.Chesterton

Some how this thought was lingering in my mind since I left my work...and thought this picture is the best to show meeting of minds...even sun and moon can do that in North Pole....then why can't we human :)....is it that difficult ?
A thought to ponder...do share if you have any comments....please ;)

“Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes.”

very nice picture.

yeah it true that in a team some may be really good and some may be not that , unless all work together for the root cause than rarely they might see the results.it holds true in every aspect of life.

Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we

TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More

There is no "I" in "TEAMWORK".

nice post as always!
cheers

Shooosh ..awesome picture yaaar...kahan kahan se lati hain bhai... :P

As they rightly say...u really write brilliantly..and by going through this post..i met ur mind at an instant and while readin it i got an idea..tht u really have an eye of a great observer...and a mind of a great philosopher...and the best part is..u r using it in the same way :)

I like the end part very much..and picture is really great..

Meeting of minds do exsist and should exsist but the base of it is provided by understanding...the greater the understanding..the greater will be the mind contacts..But as God has made everybody different from one another and unique in someway or the other (like unique finger prints) therefore...its not necessary tht every mind meets to the other..
If this difference wuld not exsist and everybody agrees with one another thn how wuld a person think on his own..his own thories..logics...and all...if enstine agrees newton thn how wuld he go in the direction of his own thoughts which were clickin for some better explaination, thn of newtons..

But anyhow..minds do meet ..at certain levels..at certain points...at some areas where no theory nor explaination culd help...

Great post :))

Hi Dawn!
Firstly, thanx 4 your B'day wishes dear!!

And well, talking about Teamwork, what is not achievable if we work in a team!! Itz all gr8 and good if evryone agrees with one another, but if there are differences of opinions, that also makes a discussion healthy, and if a thought or an idea shared by one is beneficial/catalystic to the success of the team, then everyone else around in the team would more likely than not agree with it. N thatz where the true spirit of teamwork lies...

A nice thought-provoking post Dawn...
Cheers!!

Nice pic DON!
meeting of minds......they do take place to an extent on certain areas, issues ,interests,feelings but 100% match is rarely possible.

it all has to end up at one point...where meeting of minds exists..!!!
The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands.”


Disagreement with holding of hands is not meeting of mind but a show of respect to the person whom we love and admire.

me also going ZA 's theory!

but thnx for admiring my blog n thgts..:)

cheers always

@nagu: yes ur said it..:) I remember I had a manager who used to talk to ppl about sports and the one who had played team games such as soccer, baseball, ice-hockey..he used to give them ...a major role in projects :D....just coz he believes those ppl do understand the importance of team player and being a member in a team :)
good thgts..appreciated for ur comments

cheers

cheers

@gumnaaaam: Thnx for liking the pic dear..:) I knew u wud like it :D...& also for liking my writings ;)...but its ur love tht u mentioned so much for me and about me..:D...luv u always!!

now comes to...the topic ;)..by bringing the element of understanding..u r talking here frm a relationship's perspective ..:)...I was more into work culture and team work @ work :)...everyday a newton and Einstein may / may not be born....thats an individual talent and risk that one takes but not at the cost of the companies $$$$ :)...so when we are working as a team then we shd try to make use of tht money & time to its appropriate level. I hv seen in many big companies...due to this individual decisions...many times...after the end of the whole project they come to a conclusion that there was no need of this project...so imagine ...the resources that they paid to..in hiring ..the time ..so many things..which could have stopped in the beginning itself...:)...there any Newton or Einstein cannot help to take the time back ...:)

I appreciate your thoughts and participation...coz that is more important dear...u participated and added ur thoughts with genuineness...thats wht i like about u :)

cheers always dear

cheers

Manish said...

well my opinion was on relationship point of view only for human relationships some part of individuality has to be there but then we talk of projects individual perception do not matter. As u rightly said in that scenario decisions shall be taken not on individuals whims & fancy but on overall benefit of the project.
