I have a friend, who is incredibly organized.
She knows exactly when she’s going to do the lingering tasks that live at the bottom of her to-do list.
She sits at the kitchen table and checks items off as her daughter does homework.
“I know. I’m weirdly organized,” she says.
But I admire and envy this! It’s so natural and easy for her, a true strength.
This is one of the reasons why I love using the StrengthsFinder assessment with people.
It gives you your top five naturally, God-given, born-this-way, strengths.
Strengths are indelibly woven into who you are.
Skills can build upon a strength. Or they are thing you can learn and get better at by doing over time.
One of my top strengths is positivity. I don’t have to work at this. It just flows.
As you’re learning who you are and what you want from this one life, please, don’t dismiss your strengths.
We mistakenly think, when something comes easily to us, it comes easily to everyone. That is not true!
Go to the Gallup Strengths Center, and take the assessment. It cost about $20 bucks.
Then pay attention. Notice when you’re in the flow. Notice when something is easy.
Notice that is you.
There is nothing wrong with that.
