Dream Team

Garnering inspiration from a driving moment is quite rare for me, but today was an exception. I was driving back from the grocery store and needed to pull a left at a complicated intersection that is not regulated by lights. There were five of us wanting to pull out in different directions, it was raining, and there was a lot of traffic. However, all five of us made our turns in absolute and careful synchronisation. It was perfectly timed as if choreographed and pre-rehearsed. I thought to myself, if I was in charge of hiring a team of people to work on a project, I would at the very least want the four other drivers to apply. The quick assessment of a difficult situation that was perfectly coordinated was just a model of superb teamwork. I drove away thinking ‘Well done, guys! That was beautiful!’
