“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”


“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

This is an African proverb I’ve read around 8 years ago and I have it in my office .

Why am I bring this up now ?Well we live in a time where there is so much information to absorb, from news , experts , social media etc that one cannot do it !

There comes a time when you have that feeling that the whole world is on your back, you feel the need to know it all and you feel responsible for everything. So what’s happens You become a busy fool you know a lot about unuseful things, this creates problems and frustration .

If you decide that you need to do it all alone it’s going to be overwhelming and frustrated :

What I found is that Listening to what others have to say, as they are going to contribute to your idea. And your idea will then be group’s new idea, and it will grow, contribution by contribution, gaining a strong momentum.

Building a team one can rely on and grow together is key to become successful , as sharing the ideas and the work load will make goals and projects come to a successful conclusion ,

I always say there three sides to every story ,

-your side – their side – the truth !

Building the group around you has a huge positive impact on all aspects
