Playing to your strengths, or working on your weaknesses? That’s the question in today’s podcast.
While I address it, I give you a little insight into my own strengths (at least, according to the test I just did) and a bit of information about why you need to do something similar, and how you need to go about adjusting your daily routine as a result.
The cliff notes version is this:
- You have a specific skill set. Things that you can do, but not necessarily things that you should do;
- There are lots of things you can do that you might be OK at, but are not necessarily in your true top strengths;
- You need to get rid of those out of your daily routine, to the extent possible;
- So find out what your true strengths are and then work on ways to get your career in a place where you can play to those strengths.
