I Need You. And, I'm Perfectly Okay.

“One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make the team.” – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

God has not made anyone an island. I have held a lot of startups talk about how they had to do about everything themselves. Really? Could that be the reason why about 90% of startups fail?

I have heard people boast about such times. Even though they survived, you can see they are a miniature version of all God intended for them. They boast, thinking they are wise. Unknown to them, they are most pitiable. Rolling in the mud, they think themselves cool.

God never meant for you to do everything. Life never intended for you to do everything. That is why the body is not made of just one part. You are called to focus on your strengths and delegate your weaknesses. Look for someone whose strength is your weakness and maximize the opportunity.

Struggling to build on your weakness is wasting the most expensive resource you have been endowed with, time. What will take you days to get done might just be done in hours by the right resources. Yes, you don't have to break the bank to get it done. No one is asking you to. 

Look for cost-effective resources that are appropriate for your time, season, and reality. Whatever you do, be as efficient as much as you possibly time. Forget all that fable of the superman. Those are simple, as the name goes, a facade. Come down to earth and stay in your lane.
