Sometimes it is good to step back and reflect on what it is that makes us operate. What I have learned is that there are two focal points that influence our ability to proceed when achieving goals. The concepts are 'Relationship Orientated' and 'Task Orientated' personality traits. If a person is "Relationship Orientated' this means the person needs to ensure all relationships are taken care of before he or she can move on to tasks. For example, if there is  disharmony in the band or someone is upset, then the 'Relationship Orientated' person needs to sort this out before moving on to the task of performing or recording. The 'Task Orientated' person on the other hand prefers to focus on the tasks at hand and get them out of the way before moving on to the relationship focus. An example of this would be a person would want to just get on with the process of recording the album and deal with the inner feud when this phase is done.

 Have a think about this concept and how it may impact on your life, whether in a band or at work. Keep it in you hip pocket for when the next challenge arises. Understanding where one another sits in the Relationship vs Task paradigm may help the process and keep the group work toward the dream goal as one.
