Unity is Strength

MSU News - September 3, 2014 - 2:48pm
What kinds of things have you accomplished today? Maybe you finished a big work project. Maybe you got the kids off to school. Maybe you treated a patient or taught a student. Maybe you even made a great discovery. Did you do it completely alone? Chances are more likely that you had some help. Whether it's a colleague, relative, professional, assistant, student or simply another human being, there is little in this world that we can accomplish completely alone. Collaboration is a very powerful thing. Young poet Mattie Stepanek once said, "Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." Not a day goes by where I don't spend time working with someone else in my office and the results are always better than if I had tried to go it alone. There's strength in collective minds and success in sharing tasks. I love nothing better than bringing all sorts of different people with varied skills to the table to create something remarkable. That unity and collaboration has produced some pretty wonderful things, in my opinion.
