Bee happy, don’t keep score! Keeping score is great for Yahtzee but not so great for fostering good relationships. Don’t we really only compete with someone we feel is an opponent? Ask yourself: do you want to be in a relationship with an opponent or an ally? Adding up who does what also keeps every one in ego (ME FIRST!) instead of focusing on a sense of teamwork. There will be times when one person seems to be doing more or less, but that’s because relationships are complex and not everything is something we can “score.” We all have different abilities and skills that come out at different times and in the end there is balance in a teamwork relationship.
Have a great weekend!
