When my brother and I first learned to canoe it was a hilarious adventure. We’d go from one side of the river to the other side. A straight line was next to impossible. It was a good thing we both could swim seeing that we tipped the canoe more than a few times. Eventually we got it right and figured out how to paddle and not tip the canoe. When we’re not working in sync with each other, getting to where we want to go is difficult. When we argue over our perspectives and can’t find a compromise we tip our canoe. It works better when we figure out how to work together. We get to where we want to go much quicker and we don’t tip the canoe.
