Cooperation

Posted by Phillip C Gordon on Thursday, May 9, 2013
The musing of today.  I have noticed that some people celebrate with great ability their successes, their ability to create what they want in life.  On the other hand I witness others who hand the measure of their success solely to the generosity of others.  In observing my life, neither is so, for each creation I have brought about has involved the efforts of others.  Each event, invention, relationship or thing has had the reciprocal participation of another, or others to make it so.  Recalling a story of Ford, the motorman, he once said, and I do paraphrase this story, that he was the most intelligent and informed person on the planet.  When challenged on this point he held a meeting in his office with a collection of journalists.  They began firing questions at him, to which he most comfortably answered.  When he finally had a question posed that he had no idea about, he picked up his phone and called a certain employee and put the question to him, to which he received the answer.  This was the course of the entire interview.  He was not afraid to utilise not acknowledge that others had the answers he did not.  In creating ones life, in involving ones self in this pageant, it think it most useful to acknowledge that while me way direct our creations, put in effort and focus,  manage our resources toward outcomes, there are many around us that participate in the manifestation of our creations.  Our ability coupled with others generosity make this life so.
