When you take one dynamic and mesh it with another dynamic, most often the sum of the two is greater than the two would be on their own. Take the husband and wife relationship. Each of them as individuals has strengths, gifts and abilities that make them successful in their own right. However, when you combine their strengths, gifts and abilities as they learn to work together as a team, the two are able to accomplish so much more than either of them could have ever accomplished all by themselves. In other words, 1 + 1 = 3.

Another example is the farmer, who In the old days would plow his fields with an ox. Pulling all by itself, an ox can pull a couple thousands pounds. But, when you "yoke" two of them together, combined they cannot only pull more than double the weight, but also for a longer period of time. This is "synergy."

Of course there are many other examples I am sure we could use to illustrate the concept of synergism. Just let me encourage you to look for opportunities to come together with others this week. Pair up. Work together as a team. Experience the immense profit that synergism provides.

In conclusion, I will share one of my favorite quotes:

"Let one plus one equal three. Work together and sanction a sum greater than its parts. A three-sided structure is the strongest foundation in our universe." (Author Unknown)t

I'd love to help you and/or your team tap into the power of synergy, so give me a call. 605-450-1955.
