Have there been times in your life where cooperation was both needed and well accomplished?

Asked by wundayatta (58545points) April 22nd, 2009

I was going to ask what you thought was necessary in order to have good cooperation, but I realized that such a theoretical approach might not give us much to go on. So I decided to ask about situations where you found cooperation to be essential, and it worked out: you accomplished what you set out to accomplish.

If you wish to draw lessons from this experience, that’s fine, but not necessary. It would probably make sense to do the lesson drawing later on, when we’ve seen what people have to say.

I think of that demonstration where you take a stick and break it easily, but when you put a few sticks together, you can’t break them.

When I met my current partner, everything changed…he showed me that it is possible to rely on another person and everything will get done, that I don’t have to keep on being responsible for everything, that I can relax

Of course, marriage and raising a family is based on cooperation every single day.

When I studied computer science and mathematical logic: understanding Goedel’s incompleteness theorems. Listening to our professor’s lectures didn’t help much. Same for reading various books on the subject. There was only one solution: a study group and plenty of cooperation plus patience and plenty of times (weeks if not months).
