Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. Ecclesiastes 4:9

Being alone, or doing things alone is stressful most times. Although, results are guaranteed even though you are working alone, but that result will be limited compared to working in a team. Working alone limits the mental and physical resources at your disposal, it is more psychologically tasking. Ever wonder why Jesus Christ, despite Him being Omnipotent, still went ahead to get a team of people to carry out His assignment on earth? It is because He understood that He will achieve more result than if He were to operate alone.

Most organizations today always have a team of people working on a project because they know that they will achieve more with a team than having individuals work alone. "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour" (Ecclesiastes 4:9). For better reward, work with a team. A business that is own by two or more people is more likely to last longer than a solely owned business. There will be more strategies for growth, more human resources, more energy to expend on it. There would be more fight in them. What would have made the business go under, if it were solely owned, will be better withstood if the ownership is more than one. Scriptures say in Ecclesiastes 4:12: "and if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."

The truth is, no man is an island. You cannot possibly survive in the world being alone. Get into partnership with people with shared values and vision. Get a team to work with you on the project you want to execute. Don't go solo always. Even a solo musician have to work with a team to produce his music. God never intended that the male man would be alone. The woman was always part of the plan. It was not an afterthought to make the woman. How do I know, scripture says: "so God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Genesis 1:27). He created man, both male (man) and female (woman) at the beginning. He only made the woman physically when the time was right. So, He always knew that it is better  to have a team than to be alone. Be like God.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

While is it good to work alone, it is better to work with a team. Get a team of people to work with you on your next project. You will achieve more.
