Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objective. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” – Andrew Carnegie

Not everything is meant to be accomplished alone. A variety of people working together not only speeds up the process and decreases each person’s respective workload, but it also serves to bring fresh new perspectives on an otherwise stale project. In order to keep the project running harmoniously, it is also key that each person prioritize the whole over the self; it may be difficult in the moment, but it will only serve to benefit the entire group in the long run. You may be embarking on a momentous task at the moment, one that requires teamwork in order to be accomplished. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, as those around will most likely be overjoyed to get involved.

Be sure that each member of your team is treated with respect and allowed to contribute in their own unique way; while divvying up task is important for the sake of organization, each member of the team should also be given the freedom to include their own unique contributions. At the project’s conclusion, you will find that the end product you create together will be something worth celebrating. Chances are, you will also find that it is a much better quality than anything you could have possibly achieved alone.

10 of cups reversed main meaning

Teamwork is not something that always runs smoothly; there are times that you will need to regroup in order to get yourselves back on track. When The 10 of Cups appears in the reversed position, you may be a member of a team that has lost sight of the collective visions.

This may be a friend group that has drifted apart, a family that has become distant, or a team at work that has fallen to chaos and disarray. Now is the time to bring everyone together in order to restrengthen the bonds that make you a team in the first place. Remind each other that, at least right now, the strength of the collective should be prioritized over the benefit of the individual. Your team may also need to be reminded of your ultimate goal and how you all mean to achieve it in order to address any mistakes that you have seen as of late. 

Even if you are not the official “leader” of your group, or you group does not necessarily have a specified “leader”, the current state of the team requires a guiding hand in order to pull it back on the right track. Use your voice to gently encourage your team members to focus in on the interests of the group once again, as they may have become distracted by other events. If nothing is done to save the team now, it faces the possibility of disbanding altogether. However, this does not mean that the project in question will magically disappear as well.
