Do we give the completion of a task a higher priority than the urge to do it by ourselves?
Good work happens when people come together and take individual ownerships. So, at the start, work happens when we take ownership. And later, more work happens when the ownership is given away. To test ourselves, we can ask ourselves a question- For the sake of our goals, are we willing to collaborate and work with a person with whom we experience ego issues? Guruji says that if you have differences, then keep the differences and still maintain harmony.
I recollect a few cases where goals went temporarily haywire - Differences between Lokmanya Tilak and Gopal Krishna Gokhale led to the temporary division of the Congress in the early 1900s. The opposition to Narendra Modi by L. K. Advani was hurting BJP’s goals. Criticism of Arvind Kejriwal by Anna Hazare hampered the IACs anti-corruption movement.
The world is filled with innumerable service projects. If one is complete, the other is ready for you. But the contentment is when we bring more and more people to accomplish the goal.. isn’t it?
