When it comes to finding a career that’s right for you and good for the world, you have to know your strengths. A key to the success of our Echoing Green Fellows, for example, is their ability to uncover and focus on what they rock at. (They often fill in the holes in their expertise by supplementing them with talented people on their team.) It’s a simple formula for impact. With that in mind, we want to know, what are you good at?
What a great question. Honestly I have never thought too much about this until my mother passed away 2 years ago. It somewhat goes along with the lecture last evening regarding purpose and how you need to find it. I found my purpose now all I hope is that I am good at it. Notice I really didn’t say best. Why,because I believe you are always learning. If I were to choose one thing I consider myself best at it would be identifying needs. Throughout my professional career this had been the one thing I have excelled at which in turn has effected change in my life or others. Striving to the be the best at anything is a huge task, but what I have found is that the effort out ways the means. Trying is something you can always do in your life. The fact that I continually try to find needs or what I call “holes” in situations has only inspired me to be the best I can be. How I am able to solve these needs is something I do strive to be best at.
