What do you think of when you hear the phrase group project?
Being on a team can be fantastic. You can draw from different people’s experiences, talents, creativity, and skills. When a group works efficiently, it can make huge tasks more manageable. When you work with people whose company you enjoy, it can make mundane tasks fun.
Working effectively on a team does require some degree of trust. Unfortunately, I’ve been in group projects where that trust was broken. I recall one group history project where one member often showed up late to meetings, didn’t complete the assigned paragraphs, and refused to talk during the presentation. All of us other team members worked really hard on that project, but — because it was a group project — we walked away with a C minus.
If you’ve had a similar experience, you may be hesitant to rely on someone else. You may be tempted to bootstrap it. However, if you’re struggling by yourself to create more good days, I encourage you to enlist the help of a fitness professional. Becoming healthier and more fit can be a huge task. Let’s make it manageable and fun.
Thanks for reading. I hope you have a safe and healthy week.
