Getting The Work Done

“One boy is a boy.  Two boys is half a boy.  Three boys is no boy at all.”

–     Loren F. Stark (1899 – 1985), my grandfather

Sometimes, when you’re a kid, it “makes sense” to invite a friend to help with some work on the farm.  Think Tom Sawyer, only without the whole delegation theme.

Grandpa’s theory was simple.  With one kid, the work might get done.  With two, the odds dropped to 50%, and with three, the whole plan went out the window.

In the corporate world, it can work the same way.  We team when we need to team.  We partner when 1+1= > 2.  Most of the time though, we just have to get our stuff done.

In times of great change, a few other bodies around us can bring comfort.  Unless they also speed up results and drive to outcomes, though, we ought to heed “Starky’s” warning.  Larry the Cable Guy might be a good voice to consider, too.  “Git’r done!”
