Open Window

Wow the second article in a week that reminds me to be comfortable being different, being me:

He said “Stop worrying about what you’re bad at. Focus on what you’re good at and do more of that. Swim downstream. That’s how you become successful. Play to your strengths.”

I’ve never forgotten that conversation. It still took a few years for it to properly sink in, and during those years I did finally become a CEO. I was lucky enough to have a right hand guy who ran things internally for me, though, so my management weaknesses didn’t hinder things.

So maybe instead of worrying about all the things that I’m not doing well, it’s time to start admitting that I am good at some things and figuring out how I can do things to earn a living.

It’s like a window’s opened and I can see the sky for the first time.
