Group survival, by this I mean the actual continuation of people cohabiting or working together as a group requires the same formula as that used in long term partnerships in everyday life.
It’s said that anything that you’ve done successfully for over 10,000 hours makes you a master? Having been in a long term relationship, got me thinking of what the key to ‘surviving’ together is?
Now I’m sure there are many phycologists out there who would give you the answer but to me it comes down to working together towards a shared common goal with a balanced approach of both compromise and understanding.
It’s easy to see in a group or partnership that distraction creates an unbalance that causes a pull in opposing directions.
This means that all parties have a responsibility to recognise unbalance and to act on it with empathy and understanding.
This can be applied to marriage, cohabitation, group activities, etc.
Just my thoughts!
