ego

One of the lessons I most enjoy being reminded of (and re-learning) is the value in putting aside personal ego in favor of reaching a solution that best benefits the team or group. So simple and elegant (and almost trite) in theory, so sneaky and challenging in practice.

I was reflecting on this a few minutes ago as I walked over to get lunch, when I overheard the man about a half-block in front of me, walking by himself, delivering a loud and continuous soliloquy full of rather indignant observations about how people on the street were turning to look at him.
