To collaborate is to empower. When we extend this idea to healthy competition, to compete is to elevate. The collective "we" will achieve more if we are pushed by those we trust, who are compelled to improve our solution, who revel the improved product — regardless of whose hand last touched it. These folks are our partners, and we strive for their ideas to win out as much, and as longingly, as we hope ours do. We offer our suggestions and criticisms as valuable feedback, and we remain open-minded when they reciprocate. We are all accountable to the problem at hand, and ultimately, the best solution winning in the market — sometimes that's not the one we authored.
