    I Prefer To Work Alone But Depends On The Criticality Of The Work...

    Even though I like to be in a team, I prefer to work alone. Simply can't trust people with important decisions and work. Got a feedback from this girl to just trust someone atleast once! Others knew that i deliver and they let me do my thing. I have always worked in Self-Managed...

    Teams, like committees,

    are generally a number of people doing the work of one. Teams are fertile grounds for egos to grandstand or become bogged down in trivial details, such as the precise wording to be used in a "mission statement," another royal waste of time. I have sat on team meetings where...

    Break In! Ambush!

    Me and my cousins were made to work as a team once. This this story is about a home invasion, gone bad for the intruders...   So, this is how it begins. I was about 3 years old at the time (Maybe 2, because I didn't talk much at the time), and I was at my aunts house...

    I Work Better Alone..

    I don't mind working in a team but I work better alone, I don't know why this happens : It's probably because I don't feel under pressure working alone and being calm equals a job nicely done. Maybe. Maybe it's just because I can truly be myself with no one around.

    Team Or No Team?

    I always like company, I love having friends around me, but when it comes to doing something serious, I like to work alone. I'd never trust people enough to let them do part of my work. If I want something to be done, I do it myself coz I'm never sure that whoever undertakes this...
