I don’t always write all daily posts around one theme, but today it seems that I am because that’s where my mind went from the Quartz article: from learning styles to natural athletic talent to my own most powerful naturally endowed skill.
I’m best at cutting to the chase. I don’t know how I do that. I don’t consciously go through a process. I just see, very early on, what the most significant point is and I go there. It’s how my brain is wired. Often I drive people crazy who feel I’m not giving them time to develop their case. The thing is get the case, and want to start there to talk about implications.
I once tried to work with a very bright young man who absolutely had to elucidate his entire thought process before he could talk about his conclusion. He and I were not a match. He couldn’t cut short his presentation, and I hadn’t the patience to listen to the lead-up.
I think I’ve written about this before, and some of you wrote in to say what you’re best at. I think knowing what you’re good at is really important to life satisfaction, so if you haven’t reflected on it before that might be today’s meditation: what’s you’re keenest naturally endowed skill? 🙂
