Talk about something you enjoyed doing in a group

CITY Coaching Centre, Malerkotla

  • What was it
  • With whom you did it
  • When you did it
  • How you felt about it

Short Version

I like to work in a team. In a team, I can learn from other team members. Team members join together with same goal, and they combine their skills, knowledge and motivation to achieve the goal.

Last year, our Village Sarpanch appealed to all the villagers to come forward and help in cleaning the Village. There was a wastage dumping zone in the village which was spreading infections.  We all wanted to convert that place into a park because that place was just in the centre of the Village and park would benefit all the people.

So I joined hands with others. We were a group of 50 members who agreed to give service to the community. Village Sarpanch was acting as head of the group and giving direction to the members. We all were happy. Members were motivating and helping each other. I along with other volunteers cleared the garbage from that place and transported it to other distant location. Then the ground was leveled with layers of new soil. Luckily, some rich people had donated cement, bricks, which were used to build boundary of park with the help of Volunteer masons. Then we planted trees and saplings inside the park. I myself planted 10 “Neem” trees in the park.

All group members were happy by contributing to this project. I enjoyed this community work with my friends in the group. I felt a great sense of satisfaction and peace at my heart.

This was a big project but when a group took the responsibility, it became easier.

So this was something that I enjoyed doing in a group.

Long Version

People have different capabilities. When they work in a group, they combine their skills and knowledge, and then they can handle bigger and difficult tasks also. Infact, there are many works which an individual alone cannot do. For such works, team-work is better.

Then the ground was leveled with layers of new soil. Luckily, some rich people had donated cement, bricks, which were used to build boundary of park with the help of Volunteer masons. Then group members brought full grown trees and saplings and planted them inside the park in beautifully designed lanes. I myself planted 10 “Neem” trees in the park.

All group members were happy by contributing to this project. I enjoyed this community work with my friends in the group. I felt a great sense of satisfaction and peace at my heart.

This was a big project but when a group took the responsibility, it became easier.

According to my perception. both are equally important. We need cooperation during teamwork which make the team strong and help us to compete with other people.

Competition and cooperation are equally important. Both competition and cooperation are needed in our day-to-day lives. We need to compete with others in exams, or when we start a new business. We need to cooperate with our colleagues at work, and with other players in the team sports. Children should be taught both – competition and cooperation. They should also be taught where to compete and where to cooperate.

5. Which one do you think is more important: individual development or team goals?

A good member of the team respects the efforts done by other team members and at the same time does his efforts honestly so that the whole team goes forward.
