While we are raised to believe that a solution is an end-point, the reality is that the best solutions are journeys that are committed to for the long-run. This is why persistent development is the key to the ultimate financial teamwork.
Seek The Treasure You Value Most Dearly
Over the past three weeks, we have been looking at New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks and their amazing principles. Indeed, this iconic team, which has won more than 75% of its international matches, has many pearls of wisdom that can be applied to our everyday life, as well as to businesses and investment decisions.
- In our first article we looked at the importance of financial teamwork to ensure unity.
- In the second article we explored how individual encouragement is key to creating financial leaders.
- In the third article we looked at how listening helps us build software that is centred around your final aim.
In this article, we explore perhaps a lesson from the All Blacks we should all have been taught from a young age. And that lesson is:
‘Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei’
This Māori proverb explains how we should ‘seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.’
They are deep words that need some dissection to be truly appreciated.
Persistence, Like Practice, Is What Makes Great Financial Teamwork
This proverb is about aiming high for what is truly valuable to you and to never give up. It’s about treating the obstacles stopping you from reaching your goals as challenges rather than drawbacks.
In investment as in sport, you need to be persistent; you need to train, test, learn, adjust, take risks, identify your weaknesses, make the most of your strengths, and celebrate your victories with humility. In other words, it is a journey.
Are You Ready To Start Your Journey To Success Through Persistent Development In Financial Teamwork?
The same can be said about software development in financial services. This is a cycle that requires us and you to be persistent, especially if we don’t want the ever-changing obstacles the market and the business may throw at you to stop you from achieving your goals.
This is especially true when we’re talking about strategy automation, where you have to take into the account that multiple failures are what teach you, and us, the right way forward.
But the good news is that you don’t have to go at it alone. Through a collaboration with our team of investment experts and software developers, we can create bespoke solutions that make finding your feet and achieving your goals that much more doable.
