Individual greatness is nothing but the manifestations of the invisble teamwork.
An individual would not have survived the hunting & gathering stages of evolution. It required immense teamwork to fend off the wild beasts & fury of nature to survive.
History teaches us that the first recorded civilization was the product of irrigation which required immense degree of team work.
The sumerians had to cooperate & coordinate with each other to make the irrigation system fruitful for all. Thus was born the need for the state & govt. and not because of security as is largely believed.
With the irrigation came the surplus produce & with these came the need for the distant trade. The traders went about in groups & initially dealt business with the groups only. The Guilds were born & other systems & processes were operationalised.
The common factor was cooperation, coordination & teamwork.
The kings merely became the face of the greatness & success of the civilizations.
