When doing things together the important thing is to make sure things turn out for the best, rather than worry about how much each individual has contributed.
Once, a group of boys decided to play a proper soccer game. Each one of them would bring something used in professional matches. So one would bring the ball, another the whistle, another the goalposts, others the goalkeeper gloves, the corner flags, etc...
Without even a ball they're managing to play football.
But before the game started, while they were picking the teams, there was a slight argument. They decided that the boy who had brought the most important object. Well, now they couldn't decide which had been the most important object, they thought it would be best to just start playing, , and gradually get rid of what people had brought, to see which things were truly indispensable.
The first thing they got rid of was the whistle. Then they tossed the goalkeeper gloves; they managed to save the ball just as well without them. Neither when they replaced the goalposts with a couple of bins. And so they continued, until finally they replaced the football with an old tin, and managed to keep playing...
While they were playing with the tin, a man and his son passed by seeing the boys playing like that, the man said a thing to his son.
The boys heard him say this,, and they agreed to start playing the match again. They decided to put their selfish opinions to one side, what could have been a great match had turned into a shameful display, which they were hardly enjoying at all. That moment, and realised that because of their excessive pride and egotism.
And it really was a great game. No one thought about who was playing better or worse. Rather, they just concentrated on having fun and improving their game
