When I was in third grade, my teacher took the twenty-two kids in my class to wilderness camp. My friends and I stood in a circle and held hands. Someone had to stand in the middle blindfolded, and then fall backwards. She had to trust that the people in the circle would catch her and she wouldn’t get seriously injured.
At eight years old, we were already being taught to depend on other people.
In the business world, I don’t necessarily believe this is the best idea. Think about it – there are already numerous circumstances about your job that you can’t control, like your company’s financial health, your boss’ state of mind, and whether or not your department has layoffs. So when it comes to your daily responsibilities, I feel that you should keep the power in your own hands whenever possible.
For recommendations in that vein, I've written a post on Fast Track I'd love you to review!
