Lessons in Teamwork

Today I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of doing.  I was assigned a project to work on with a fellow  coworker.  Usually I tend to do the best work when I am doing it alone so I was a little unsure of how a group project was going to turn out.  Much to my surprise though it actually turned out to be a successful adventure and a great learning experience for me.  I learned that I can go with the flow in a group situation.  I divided everything in half so no one was stuck with doing more work. It was easier to share the responsibility instead of taking on the full work load. It took an hour to get everything done and then I was free to do whatever I wanted. Most importantly though I was able to keep my need for perfection in check without going overboard. This showed a huge growth in maturity for me. In the past if I did not like the work someone did I would throw it out and do it over because I didn’t want to hand in anything crappy . Since this is the first professional group project I have worked on I accepted the results for what it was.  I did not change any of his work because he worked just as hard as I did and it would have reflected poorly on my part.

Thank you for reading!
