Choose partners wisely

BizDayBizDay

If you take the best singer in the choir and let him/her stand next to one who cannot carry a tune and sings discord you will soon find the best singer singing worse than the one who sings discord. The reason why they place singers singing the same part next to each other in a choir is that they want them to hear each other’s voice and regulate theirs until there is harmony. If just one singer in the choir sings out of tune then the choir is in danger of singing out of harmony.
The same thing happens with those who are in business. If you choose your partners wisely, you will find that it is easy to ‘sing the same song’ because you will be thinking alike. If, however, you choose someone who does not value the things that you value you will find yourselves fighting more than helping each other. There will be competition instead of complementing and the result is far from harmony.
When you want partners to work with in business, choose those who are eager to see you succeed; those who benefit mutually from your efforts and are eager to make you benefit in the same way. If you choose those who are jealous of your success they will make sure they pull you down.
There is need for harmony between partners in business as much as there is need for harmony in a choir. It comes in the choir if all the singers standing in the same place are singing the same part and can listen to each other and pitch voices to complement rather than to compete. The same will happen in business if you choose the best partners possible who will complement your efforts.
