Acknowledgments

Growing up I don’t think I ever read the acknowledgements of many books.

I suppose, I probably just thought that’s nothing to do with me, it’s for the people being acknowledged.

But recently I started thinking about who I’d acknowledge if I ever wrote a book and it was quite fun.

I sat and asked myself who in my life has helped, supported or contributed to where I’m at. Those are the people I’d give a shout out to in my book.

I think most of us have people in our lives that have taught us things, sometimes even by accident but they’ve helped shape us.

For me those are people worth acknowledging.

Does equal contribution matter?

When it comes to working on a project or task as a group, is it more important that each member contributes equally or that everyone plays to their strengths.

Initially I thought that it was necessary for everyone to contribute equally but then I got thinking more about the individual.

I think the solution is a balance of the two. Perhaps each person should pick a task in line with their own strength and then balance out the rest.

But contribution matters, especially when the you’re being judged as a team. I think so anyway.
