What’s More Important?

 

What is more important to you? The success of the shot you’re working on, or having a sense of ownership and individual accomplishment from your contribution to it?

 

Very often it’s just not possible to have both. So ask yourself this question: How prepared would you be to sacrifice your sense of ownership, that ability to look back in years to come and say “I did that all by myself”, for the good of the shot?

 

If you’re convinced that your ideas are the best despite differences with the rest of your team, or if you’re not even inviting input from the rest of your team, is there a chance it’s just your ego potentially sabotaging the shot? Are you putting yourself before your team?

 

I know I’ve been guilt of this several times in the past. Have you?
