Recently, some teammates and I were having some arguments over something that I would consider to be pretty insignificant. During our last tournament, instead of listening to my teammates, I pinned my opponent for 60 seconds, then when it came time to expand, I didn’t listen to my teammates and accidentally shot in the wrong direction, shooting the ref.If you like, you can see this transpire here!
Our team was distraught after this. “If only there was a resource that would teach us to work together better as a team!” I thought. If there were a resource like this, maybe we would be able to finally get our robot done, instead of throwing cracked drill bits and discs at each other.
My desire for something like this prompted what would become an arduous journey, scouring the internet left and right. There were nights when I couldn’t even sleep. There had to be something out there!
One day, I discovered BLRS’s wiki for team dynamics (you should definitely read it). Suffice to say, the course of my life has been altered permanently. My teammates and I work much better now, we even have daily meetings in the bathroom! I have learned so many skills from reading it, but I won’t name any, because you need to find out for yourself. While you’re at it, you should read their other articles as well.
