There Is No ‘I’ in a Team

There Is No ‘I’ in a Team We spend 90% of our lives at work. Specifically, people who work in the corporate sector, spend more time at their offices than at home. The success of a corporation is based on a very famous concept ‘there’s no ‘I’ in a team!” It is true, both literally and figuratively. The spelling of the word, ‘team’ does not accommodate the letter, ‘I’.

However, does this expression only apply to our work? Is this the extent of this beautiful saying? The answer is no! Let’s find out how through a real-life experience! Charles Plumb was a US fighter-jet pilot in Vietnam. Before he was shot down, he had participated in 75 combat missions. When he>>>

Devotion and Productivity Go Hand-In-Hand Once upon a time, an old man was walking down a beach when he noticed a little boy throwing something in the sea. He walked up to the boy and inquired, “My dear son, what are you doing here so early in the morning?” without stopping to look at the old man, the boy replied, “Hello sir, I am throwing these jellyfish back in the sea. A bunch of them washed up on the shore last night, they will surely die if the sun comes up and they are not in the water so, I am trying to put them all back in the sea.” The old man smiled at the folly of the little boy. He looked at the number of jellyfish and reasoned, “But this is absurd, there are hundreds of jellyfish here, you possibly cannot throw all of them in water before>>>

Despite it being Christmas Eve, the nurses and doctors alike were seen running over to congratulate the doctor.  Everyone wished to witness this Christmas miracle before they headed home.

She was running around the house searching for her bags and books.
