The Relay Runner

We are all runners in a relay, whether in our work, at play or at home. Each one plays a role in ensuring the overall good of the community we are a part of. A person who does everything may achieve much but he tires easily. He also may not have the best ideas or skills to perform the best for the community. Most of all, he is unlikely to deliver the overall best. The most dangerous situation is that if he leaves or fall, the community suffers from not have a smooth succession plan.

I believe in a system of strong leadership team in Persatuan, one that the team actively assist one another in building up the work that we are called into collectively. As we are all guided by the Vision and Mission of the association we have direction and a goal to focus on. I believe there is joy and delight in this work when all the team members run their leg of the 'race' to achieve victory. My last take in this subject is there is no victory in our respective leg of the work, we just do our best and pass on the baton to the next runner who will take the work to a higher and different level.
