A common trait among people who understand excellence is the ability to visualize, to see in the mind's eye the reality of excellence. If I could download my vision in a picture form it would be great art. Alas, I'm stuck with words.
As I write about teams I write mostly from the vision and partly from experience. I have been a part of great teams before and the experiences were life changing.
I have fallen short since going into business for myself, stuck between being (practically) a one man show, and building the team I envision. I have leaned toward the one-man show because of heart-health (stress) reasons, but I am throwing that excuse to the wind and forging forward -- I'd rather go out in a great big THUMPITY-THUMP than to not build what I envision -- it's at the point now of irritating me to not build it. Who knows, it may give my heart strength and longer action.
I will use this exercise as a blueprint. I appreciate all the input so far.
