Ants are very collaborative. The hierarchy of ants includes one queen, a bunch of patrol ants, even more foraging ants and more nest maintenance ants than any one would care to think about. The queen lives for 15 to 20 years of age while the other ants collectively known as worker ants live for just a year or two. The queen ant only mates once but continues to lay eggs for her whole life.
The most remarkable part is how much work ants get done. They build and maintain huge nests. The find, deliver and distribute there own food supply (unlike roaches that just stagger around looking for anything they can find to eat).
Ants owe their accomplishments to the collaborative nature of their activities. Each ant has a job but depends on the other ants for assistance. Did you know a group of ants can pick up and carry a toothpick around like a trophy? Ants are cool.
Ants remind me of a ‘best ball golf scramble.’ “The Scramble” is a great way for golfers of various abilities to participate in a tournament. Usually players are divided into foursomes. Each foursome competes against the other foursomes. It is a team competition.
In a scramble, each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players in that foursome play their second shot from that spot. The best of the second shots is selected. Then all the players in that foursome play their third shot from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.
Now here is the part that is fascinating: any foursome, comprised of 4 terrible golfers, might break the course record for low score. Let me say that again: 4 guys that when playing under conventional rules don’t expect to individually break 100 are able to score at par or below when they play as a team and choose best ball on each shot.
This is perhaps the greatest testimonial for team work since the ant. In basketball they say “good teams beat great players every time.”
Using two way radios captures this same collaborative effort of accomplishment. Two way radios foster team work and working together. I bet your business could benefit from more collaboration. Let us help you find the best 2 way radios for your application. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.
