Is this statement true? Most of us would remember from elementary mathematics that it is, of course, not true. Set A Union Set B cannot be greater than Set A Plus Set B because the whole cannot be greater than the sum of its parts. Hang on…I thought we said many times that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts? How is that so? What else must be in the mathematical expression?
Think of a frog. It has a body, eyes, tongue, legs, nostrils, etc, right? All those components make up a frog, ja? Now, let’s say we put the frog in a blender and make some frog smoothie. Are all the components of the frog still there? But do we still have a frog? No, we don’t, of course, we just have frog smoothie.
So, for a whole to be greater than the sum of its parts, it needs something else in the system. It needs synergy. It needs teamwork. It needs to be infused with life, it needs, so to speak, to be “en-zoe-d”. And nothing puts in more life than great ENTHUSIASM! So, make your team’s day today. Get “en-zoe-d”. And get ENTHUSED! Have a great day ahead!
