And we often are glad that we are good enough to get by with our strengths so we have more time to spend on the weak areas.
What if, rather than looking at our weaknesses, we looked at the weakest part of our strengths?
Here’s what I mean. What are you best at? What is the weakest part of what you are best at? You may still be better than 90% of the population at that thing, but you aren’t happy with it.
Now, rather than pouring the next week into fixing the thing you don’t know how to do at all, pour it into fixing the weakest part of what you are best at.
Have a great phone style but can’t remember to smile? Fix that part. Know how to do every part of a sales call well but somehow always spill your coffee? Fix that thing. Write incredible posts but can’t quite figure out how to end them? Fix that thing.
I don’t know what you do worst about what you do best. But you do. Fix that, and your best will be even better than now.
