One thing that I’ve started to realize is that it’s best to do things in pairs. A large group of people can certainly help in moving you farther ahead in life. Not to mention being able to grow yourself in more ways than you can imagine.

But I often find a pair dynamic to be especially helpful depending on who the person is. Doing things in pairs can have a number of advantages and ultimately begins your growing process when you find the right people.

Why Do Things In Pairs

It Gives You A Broader Scope Of The World

With every person that you add to a group the more perspectives that you add that you can leverage. But when you are starting out by doing things in pairs, the small group can be particularly helpful in more ways you can imagine.

For sure there can be perspectives about a variety of topics, but I’m also referring to the town that one is living in as well. People have gone and seen things but they’ve also retained that knowledge too.

It’s these experiences that can help you out tremendously in certain situations. In general, street knowledge can be great in finding some great places to hang out or do other things.

It Can Help You Commit Better

I was talking to my accountability partner about this yesterday. For several years I’ve started to realize I struggle a lot when it comes to doing things on my own. I find it particularly difficult to stay committed and find the motivation to pursue on my own.

This isn’t the case with my writing – mainly because I love it so much and I’m used to it by now. However, for the other things I want to do in my life, I find it’s a battle. Take working out, I’ve gone from going to a gym to now being in “hibernation mode.”

I believe now I need a type of group element or to do things in pairs in certain situations to grow. I know that I can make these things into habits soon enough, but the initial boost of doing things in pairs can help people out significantly.

It Can Help You Relax

Doing things in pairs can help in relieving a lot of pressure, stress and other negative emotions. Obviously this can stem from you simply talking things out, but I also mean indirectly as well.

One thing my accountability partner offered yesterday was for me to be part of his and his friend’s bookclub. It’s only the two of them, however I feel being part of that bookclub will help me in getting to read more.

Not reading full-length books isn’t a huge stressor for me, however, it is one of my goals. I want to be reading more as it’ll help me in expanding the topics I can write and talk about. So by being in a small group that’s committed to reading a specific book, I believe it’ll help me in not getting so hung up that I’m not reading as much as I’d like to.

It’s not specific stress relief, but this offer did remove stress. Stress that I’m not reading as much and the like.

Do Things In Pairs

It pays to do things in pairs at the very least as it’s easier to find someone else rather than a large collective group. Of course, the more quality people that are in your life the better, but if you’re struggling with getting many, opt for going for one right now.

To your growth!
