The “I” in team…

At first,  I just thought this picture was funny,  but now I think they were on to something…

When people say there is no “I” in team,  they want to express that you should put the team’s needs ahead of your own.  When the team achieves something, it is the result of combined efforts,  and not one person’s only.
But this expression might mislead people into shirking.  “If it’s the team’s effort and not my own that counts,  why should I go through the trouble?” People tend to be selfish when it comes to their needs versus the community’s.  So I believe we should acknowledge every single “I” we have in a team, and make them realize there is no team if they aren’t all involved in the process.
