Great teammates are committed past the mere completion of tasks. Everyone knows when someone is working hard or punching a clock. When someone is punching a clock, they have lost sight of the purpose and passion that the team should share. If I find myself going through the motions, I have to ask myself why I am not as passionate as I should be. Am I not inspired by the vision? Do the goals of the team seem achievable? Do I want to put forth the effort to achieve those goals? Have excuses replaced determination as the governor of my decision making? Would the team be better off if I stepped away? These are all hard questions to face. Great teams make these answers easy to find. The decisions that follow are not as easy.
