Work in Your Area of Strength

Success comes from maximizing your strengths, not from building strong weaknesses.  It seems obvious, but most people look at where they’re weakest and try to get better at those things.  I think the truth is that you will get better and better at the things you’re naturally gifted in and have always enjoyed if you focus on developing those things into skills.

Here are some questions to help you find out where you should be spending your time:

  1. What gives you life at work, and what takes it away?
  2. What work activity makes you feel strong and energized?
  3. What work activity makes you feel exhausted?

If you want to be really successful, you need to be spending 60% of your day doing the things that give you life and make you feel energized.

The secret of people who dominate their fields of endeavour is that what they do doesn’t feel like work to them.
