Two Is Better Than One

Partnerships (at least the successful ones) encourage a series of characteristics—trust, teamwork, a regard for someone else, and continuing checks and balances.

You can’t do everything on your own.  Even Einstein wouldn’t have been successful if there weren’t other people he didn’t talk to all the time. Total isolation does not work. You need interaction, putting your own thoughts into expression; you learn things just from doing it.

Splitting The Challenge

Partnerships all made these people happy, and happier than they would have been had they worked for their success alone. They had someone else with whom to experience the challenging lows and the ecstatic highs; another person in the trenches, another person to pop the champagne

Finding The Right Person

Who here doesn’t want to be happier in their work and personal lives? Who would prefer to organize a party for one (be it of a celebratory nature or a pity party)? Who wants to work harder alone rather than alongside others who share your dreams and aspirations?
