Carrying

In video games, there is common terminology around what it means to be a carry.

A “carry” is a character or player who can carry your entire team to victory.  Most players focus on choosing and focusing on this character, or strive to be a carry themselves in that they metaphorically hoist their team onto their shoulders and carry them to victory.  

But what would it look like for a carry to choose to instead support their team and build a trusted group of people who could succeed together? Yeah, it’s probably harder than getting good yourself, as it requires working with people.  But having a team that has your back is not only more effective, but also a lot more fun.
