Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. - Vince Lombardi

Individual commitment to a group effort truly is what it's all about if we want to make things work.

Indeed! But every once in a long while "the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many"! :)

Good point, T.!

True, we can never lose sight of ourselves and of our own needs.

What I was getting at by posting that quote is that I wonder how many of us are balanced in regard to weighing our own needs with the thought of what we can do to help ourselves versus what we can do to help the team, the company, the society, and the civilization?

Seems to me we are all generally pretty good at setting our own little things aside for the team, and we can usually do this for the company. Less often, but still sometimes, we do this for the society and the civilization. How can we change our thinking as a country so that more of us want to do more in regard to the society and the civilization?

I guess as the concept becomes larger and less tangible, the more we may tend to turn toward our own needs, which are after all, easiest for us to comprhenend and apply ourselves toward.

Think globally and act locally... not an easy thing to do, really. It is what I try for, anyway.

I understand and appreciate your point, Snave. I commend you for your attempts to "think globally and act locally." Hopefully I am able to follow your example at least half as well, my friend!

Of course that is true and besides WW2 why we pulled out of the Great depression. There is no group effort here and we will win at anything only because of Obama and despite on group effort.
