“The Battery and Brain” – The Power of Organized Effort
When we think of batteries, we technically imagine of its shapes, sizes and where it is installed. For one thing, it depends on what image pop-up in your brain. Maybe on remote control of your television, on cars or even on what you’re holding right now. At this moment you’re possibly wondering why did I use “The Battery and Brain” and “The Power of Organized Effort” on the title. Thinking what are their connections. Besides, I will leave you wondering and let you know why.
The Brain, Battery and Neuron
To give a proof that battery and brain are somehow connected I searched for a scientific explanation of it. And as a result, it is stated that each neuron in our brain possesses the ability to accumulate a charge across its cell membrane. Which results in a small, but meaningful voltage.
The average neuron contains a resting voltage of approximately 70 millivolts or 0.07 volts. This is quite small when we compared it to the 1.5 volts in a AA battery or the 220 or 110 volts in a wall socket. What is interesting though, is that although 70 millivolts may seem insignificant, but the microscopic scale at which it occurs is fascinating.
As a final point, like a battery there are many sizes and shapes of neurons. These neurons convey information through electrical and chemical signals. For an instance, Try to picture electrical wiring in your cellphone. An electrical circuit is made up of numerous wires, connected in such a way that when you click your home button it will turn the screen on or will get you in your home screen.
A neuron that is excited will transmit its energy to neurons within its vicinity. Like a battery on your phone, if you click the volume button the battery will excite and give you the function of the button that you need.
The Brain and Battery, Not all Brains and Batteries contain same capacity
It is a fact that the amount of energy provided by each individual battery depends upon the number and capacity of cells it contains. For example, there are two AA batteries the first battery contains 24VDC while another battery contains 16VDC. The battery that contains 24VDC is more efficient rather than the battery that contains 16VDC.
As a matter of fact, our brain functions in a similar way. Some brain are more efficient than others. For instance, your brain is more efficient than your friend’s brain or vice versa.
The Brain and Battery in terms of Ideas
Furthermore, our brain is like a battery, not only because of the neuron in our brain can accumulate a charge. But because it is like a battery in terms of ideas. Especially when two or more brain help each other.
In a similar way a group of batteries will supply more energy than a single battery. That’s why most of our remote and flashlight requires two batteries to operate.
If a group of brain is coordinated and connected with each other it will provide more ideas that can make your foundation of plans and decisions concrete. This will be the time that the power of organized effort will be useful.
The Power of Organized Effort
Organized effort produced through the coordination of two or more people, who work toward a definite plan. This organized effort creates the power to transform desire into unlimited success.
With organized effort, the entire Group works together to attain a common goal or objective. And the most effective tool to create organized effort is through the creation of a mastermind group.
The origin and development of the mastermind concept were popularized in the 1930s. By personal success author Napoleon Hill in his discussion with Andrew Carnegie. Who commissioned Hill to write a general formula for creating success in business and life.
This power usually useful and it is required when accumulating money. Especially when starting a business group or partnership.
The Benefits of Organized Effort when Building a Business
There are advantages and disadvantages when building a business with a business partnership or organized effort. But in this case I will focus on the benefits of it. And for me the benefits of Organized effort are the following:
1. Sharing of knowledge, skills, experience and contact
Partners can share out tasks, with each specializing in areas they’re best at and enjoy most. In that case, they can work with a little chance of stress and pressure. For instance, if one partner has a great financial background, they could focus on book keeping. Whereas another may have previously worked extensively in sales or in another area of the business. Therefore, he/she will take ownership of that side of the business.
However, if you don’t have a partner you’d have to do all of this by yourself or you could manage to hire someone to do some of it.
2. Sharing of emotional load or Moral support
Compared to operating on your own business, by working in an organized group you can benefit from companionship and mutual support. For example, if your business is at the lowest peak, it can cause pressure, stress and definitely it can feel bad for all of your partners, but if one of your partner has an attitude of not giving up. It can lift all of your partner’s feelings and start to push again.
In addition, starting and managing a business alone can feel stressful and daunting, particularly if you’ve not done it before. Moreover, it can end your business in easiest way by quitting.
However, in a partnership, you’re in it together and willing to push each other to the limit. For the purpose of attaining the unlimited success.
3. Better decision making
Compared with operating on your own, in a partnership the organized group or the company will benefit from the unique perspective brought by each partner. In business, very often two heads really are better than one, as I said earlier, if a group of brain are coordinated and connected with each other it will provide more ideas that can help in planning better. Even more, it includes knowledge, perspective, experiences and etc.
In addition, the combined conclusions of each individual in your organized group while debating on a situation are better than what can be concluded if you are alone or individually. That debate can gain more ideas and new knowledge while accumulating money.
4. Better Work and Life Balance
By sharing the labor, a partner may also lighten the load. It may allow you to take time off when needed, knowing that there’s a trusted person to hold the fort. This can have a positive impact on your personal life.
5. More partners, more sources of capital
The more partners, the more money there may be available, the combined resources of the group can make it easier for them to invest in a business, which can help them to fuel and accelerate the growth of the company. Together, their borrowing capacity is also likely to be greater, if the company needs to borrow a money for the purpose of investing.
To summarize, our brain is like a battery, not only because of the neuron in our brain can accumulate a charge. But also because in terms of connection, When a battery/brain is connected to another battery/brain it will supply more energy/knowledge or ideas than a single battery/brain. Though some batteries/brains are not efficient because of having lower capacity, it is okay if you connect it to a fully charged/higher capacity battery/brain.
In business, very often two heads really are better than one or in other words, two brains are better than one, when building a business with an organized group or effort, it will multiply all of your brain power in the group when thinking of a plan or acting upon decisions. By the combination of knowledge and experiences that you and your partner/partners have, and also by considering and agreeing on these benefits that I listed it can help you to create a solid output of your business.
Considering the power of organized effort when building a business can help you to think more ideas and find more opportunities around.
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. “– African Proverb
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”– Helen Keller
“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.”– Oliver Wendell Holmes
I hope this article inspires you to start a business, especially by the use of an Organized effort.
