Notes: Partner workouts in the gym are usually about suffering for someone else, or working harder because the pressure of peers, we use these as teaching examples and corollary for life. This session was a bit different, although those aspects are still present. It is more important to communicate clearly, above all else, you can't out work your inability to inform you partner of what they need to do or what it is you are going to accomplish, Without proper, clear attentive communication a team breaks down, no matter how hard one, both or all are working. No matter how special, elite, qualified, certified an individual or team is, the lack of the most basic human ability will unravel it quickly. 

Unfortunately in this business it is far more important to be recognized as the individual responsible for accomplishment. A team held up by narcissism and driven by ego is short lived, and ultimately doomed to fail. Those that are able to make ultimate sacrifices for the benefit of others are the only ones I'm interested in training, learning, teaching and befriending.
