Build on Your Strengths:
Improve the Things You're Already Good at Doing

Many people spend too much time working on improving their competency in their weakest areas. It's not a very effective strategy.

What will have the better payoff—and result in more personal satisfaction—is the development of our best skills and talents. We're better off—and so are the people we serve—if we build on our strengths rather than trying to improve our weaknesses.

It's not that we shouldn't try to improve in all areas, but rather that we should devote most of our efforts to what will generate the most progress and position ourselves for creating the most value in the world.

We each have unique potential, and we'll never actualize it fully by working hard at those things that are not our inherent strengths.

Hone and develop the things you're already good at doing.

Action Point
Make a list of all your attributes—your skills, knowledge, attitudes and talents. Determine what you're the best at doing. What have you the potential to master? Then, focus on those.

Pay less attention to what you're NOT good doing and more attention to your core competencies.
