It’s very difficult for me to answer this question.
When we work alone, there are not 5 other heads…
- to access your work
- to add their useless and unnecessary suggestions
- to disturb you
- to bother you with their ego problems
So, that makes it sound like ‘Working alone’ is a superb idea after all. And if you sit back and recall the stories of all the successful people with great achievements in their life, they appear to be lone achievers.
And trust me, if you get rid of all the things I mentioned above, you have surpassed 70% hurdles of your job.
While the other side of the story is:
When you work solo, there isn’t anyone around to pat your back occasionally, to share the concerns, to cheer in small accomplishments, to delegate your work (to someone who could be better at it), to rely on when you feel like taking a break.
It’s just the same topic where all goodies don’t come in a single package. I am unable to decide. Which one weighs more? Any suggestions people?
