She knew, instinctively, what, atrepparttar time, I did not. That *mother* has to do this to stimulate said apparatus to work.

The box stayed onrepparttar 101963 floor andrepparttar 101964 dog didn't leaverepparttar 101965 side of it forrepparttar 101966 next three days and nights together. If someone within so much as hiccuped, she was there, snouting around to check on her newly adopted charges.

She stopped short of attempting to breast-feed. Oh,repparttar 101967 kittens tried, but Holly yelped as those needle sharp teeth impaled on tender flesh! I therefore gotrepparttar 101968 job of shoving milk in one end with a syringe at two hourly intervals. I wiped little hands and faces with a damp cloth, then held each kitten up for Holly to take care ofrepparttar 101969 other ends.

It was like a factory production line! And it was truly magnificent to watch, be a part of and to learn from.

Do you see what I am getting at?

Those kittens obviously could not have survived without food. But they also would not have survived withoutrepparttar 101970 dog's attentions. Neither task was more, nor less important thanrepparttar 101971 other. Neither of us was competing, we simply HAD to work together to getrepparttar 101972 job done. The result isrepparttar 101973 lives of those three tiny, helpless mites who are now growing up to be very fine and strong young cats.

(OK, a little confused about their identities. How many cats do you know who come when their *mother* barks? :-)

It has also done masses to cementrepparttar 101974 relationship between me andrepparttar 101975 dog. The responsibility she took on has changed her personality entirely from self-centred to co-operative and caring, but I think I learned more than anyone.

Teamwork is not always about competition and scoring points. It's not about bosses and subordinates, there should be harmony, although there may well be leaders. It's not about *what's in it for me*, nor even you.

It's about what can be achieved together that's bigger than itself and goes out beyond itself, yet still brings back much more in terms of repayment and satisfaction.

Apply these principles to your business, team and client relationships, to your joint ventures, to your reciprocal linking strategy, to your viral marketing ... and watch your results add up to way beyondrepparttar 101976 sum ofrepparttar 101977 parts.

"The universe operates through dynamic exchange ... giving and receiving are different aspects ofrepparttar 101978 flow of energy inrepparttar 101979 universe. And our willingness to give that which we seek, we keeprepparttar 101980 abundance ofrepparttar 101981 universe circulating in our lives." ------Deepak Chopra
