Unless you are a tennis ball, you don’t want to be well rounded. Be the best Bob, Jane, Tanya, Diana, Mike, Jon, … you can be. You have been given passion, learned and mastered skills. There is one thing or many things that you are remarkable at. There are also things that you stink at. I stink at anything that requires extreme attention to detail – double entry book keeping, baking, jigsaw puzzles.
I made the choice to focus on the stuff that energizes me, that inspires me, that I know I am really great at and reduce wherever possible the stinky stuff. I don’t resent doing it but I know there is someone else who is much better and enjoys it.
Give yourself a break today and do more of the work that you are remarkable at and less of the stuff that someone else is amazing at doing. Unless you want to be smacked at 140 km/hr over a net, don’t strive to be mediocre at everything.
