My last post was about Strengths and the 3 questions you have to ask yourself to maximize your success…
Today, we are going to talk about weaknesses –
Here’s the deal…
I’m NOT from the school of thought that tells you to discover your weaknesses and spend all your time strengthening them –
I AM from the school of thought that suggests that you spend 80% of your time on your STRENGTHS — so what do you do with your weaknesses?
I’ll tell you — here’s 3 questions to help you with this…
Question #1: What are my weaknesses?
Once you answer, forgive yourself — it’s okay that you aren’t perfect, we ALL have weaknesses!!!
Question #2: How much of my time am I spending on things that primarily involve one or more of my weaknesses INSTEAD of on my strengths?
Question #3: Who do I know that has strengths where I have weaknesses and how can I get creative about creating a WIN/WIN so we develop a mutually beneficial relationship that has both of us spending most of our time on our strengths?
Stop trying to be perfect and fix all your wekanesses — that doesn’t mean you don’t want to improve – improving is great! BUT here’s the deal — when you spend 80% of your time on your strengths, your happiness and results will increase (because we tend to like what we are good at)…
Look at every area of your life and ask yourself these questions — you’ll be amazed at the results!
