3 Men in a Boat
Do you gather before you start your work? Do you see gathering as part of work.
In Turkey, I watched these three men gather before they began to get their boat ready to cast off. They seemed so connected and joined being with each other.
I encourage you to gather before you work by taking time to check-in with each other or to huddle or to chat a bit over the phone or text a bit on the computer. We do not get work done through relationships, we get work done with relationships so remember that relationships, not just tasks, are your work.
