Collaborate, don’t compete

Collaborate don’t compete. I think something a lot of people fear is the opportunities out there are snatched by someone else, and I can definitely sense it when other students are hesitant on helping others with their interviews and job search when it’s the same firm and role. To be honest, I was like that too because I constantly felt imposter syndrome where I didn’t feel as qualified as people around me.

However, they are not really stealing opportunities from you. The same also applies to women bringing each other down instead of working together to succeed together. Not just women either but this applies to everyone. Why does everything need to be a competition? It doesn’t!

Everyone is on his or her own journey and the more we help each other, the more we actually thrive together. The world is very lonely to live in if everything is a race. What kind of person do you strive to be?

One of my projects at work is finally going live after two years! It also happened to be my FIRST project despite having done four others while this was still ongoing. It was a long journey and we had many hurdles… SO MANY! But what held us all together – and sane – was teamwork.

Actually we had our milestone celebration yesterday and the client’s CFO mentioned this proverb. It stood out to me on how this applies in other relationships in our life too!
