A few weeks ago I wrote about personal energy and explained why I believe energy is more important than time or money. Then I asked if you were aware of the energy level you function at, and if you knew what energizes or drains you? Today, I want to talk about something closely related to personal energy, a phenomenon that is out of this world.
If you care about maximizing your energy, I’d like to challenge you to consciously consider synergy. What is synergy you ask? It is the interaction of two elements that results in a sum that is bigger than the parts. Imagine that! You add one element to a second element and you get MORE than the two elements alone. Now that gets my attention. If I care passionately about maximizing my personal energy levels, this amplification or multiplication takes my excitement to a whole new level.
The best example I have to explain synergy is water (H2O). You take two atoms of Hydrogen, share their outer electrons with one atom of Oxygen, and you get water. Water is essential for life. We need water. Nor, can I imagine our world without its beautiful streams, rivers, lakes and oceans. Water is amazing and yet is the simple synergy between Hydrogen and Oxygen. Water is the sum result or reward of Hydrogen and Oxygen working together. Notice that neither loses its own identity or autonomy. They just willingly partner together and a mysterious third element becomes a part of their relationship.
I have come to the conclusion, if I want to succeed in a new project or program; I need to find a partner that can join their unique abilities with mine. When we partner with someone for a common goal, the result of our time and activity is maximum production without losing anything of ourselves. Together we produce something that is bigger than just our two parts.
Synergy is a powerful reality that supersedes everyday excellence. For more on this subject visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHk3sQ1Foew&t=15s
