On a team with an all-star

I'm on a team with someone that has proven themselves to be an all-star already. I don't think anyone in the cohort would argue that the guy brings his "A" game and is prepared. If you are in a subsequent cohort and are reading this (and I hope you are because that is my targeted audience) I offer the following advice to you. Your natural tendency will be to loaf. DON'T DO IT, for a couple of reasons.

  • The entire AMP program is also an audition for a job or partner that you may need later in life. Treat it as such.
  • The AMP program culminates with a group assignment in Professor Smith's class. By the end of the year, people will be jockeying for the strongest teammates. You will want to be seen as someone that pulls his or her own weight.
  • Slacking and relying on other teammates is the equivalent of only doing half your reps when working out. You are only cheating yourself.
Be thankful you have the good fortune to be on a good team and make the most of that experience.
