Pull Together With Your Team
- Each day, comment on the reflections of at least three team members
- You may offer support, congratulations, tips or advice, or anything you think will contribute to their experience
- If you aren’t playing on a team, you can use the World Reflection feed or even find a team to join — there are lots of open, virtual teams!
Watch this video for an explanation of this Lifestyle Practice from Whole Life Challenge co-founders Andy Petranek and Michael Stanwyck.
Why Is This Practice Important?
It’s said that if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Doing things alone is often a convenient path — you get to move at your pace, no one tells you what to do, and no one else’s messy problems can bring you down. You are the beginning and end of any consideration about how things go. While that can sometimes be nice, it has its limitations.
But then there’s that “go far” part. Over time, doing things alone can hinder your progress — and it’s definitely not as fun. There is no one to tell you to slow down, share insight on what to do, and to support you during your messy problems. It’s easy to take that kind of stuff for granted and assume you’ve got it all covered, but without friendly outside eyes, you might never get a clear picture of what you’re stuck on.
Being a part of something where everyone is chasing the same goal can open up a world of possibilities. In giving support, you get it— finding guidance in what you share with each other. In being a part of how others solve their problems, you can be inspired, both to conquer your own and to share in someone’s success. And in being open to others, you’ll open the number of eyes and minds that are committed to your success in ways you might not have imagined.
