Collaborate or Sink

Working together is building a community. When one works together on common goals, you collaborate. It is different from co-operation as wrongly understood. Co-operation is about splitting a project up evenly on some basis. But when work is to be done together on creating solutions to a common problem, you are actually collaborating. Deep-set within the word 'collaborate' is the word 'co-labour' which means working together. Cooperation simply splits the larger task up into smaller fractions and recommends working independently whilst providing support and sharing resources to the other whenever so required. Collaboration on the other end is working together to find a common solution. Infighting is indeed very easy to come-by in communities with challenging situations, confusing tasks and scarce resources. But they rather learn quickly that communities that do not learn to swim together would soon learn to sink together. Collaborate to survive.
