Today I counted no less than four new initiatives promoted by our employees: A business…
I have two major weaknesses. (Well, actually many more, but this should be a blog post, not a book.) My first weakness is I hate sports. Or more generally, any kind of strenuous activity. A good walk is fine, if not much longer than 2 hours, thank-you.
My second weakness is I sense very little. I’m always caught up in my projects and my own thinking. I rarely notice what goes on around me. If the building was on fire I would be the last to realize it. Briefly.
Now, I know that it’s better to focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. But that doesn’t mean you should just ignore how you suck!
What works for me is that I combine weaknesses with strengths. For example, I like taking pictures. I’m good at being creative. And I’m good at doing things differently. Oh, and believe I’m a decent writer. (I’ll stop here, to prevent it from becoming yet another book.)
That’s why I regularly set myself the following challenge:
Walk for more than an hour and look for things that catch your eye and take pictures in a way that is creative and different!
With this personal challenge I spend some time working on my physical activity and sensitivity by combining this with creativity and remarkability. And now I’m writing about it too!
These are some pictures I took yesterday during my walk through Brussels:
You can see the entire set here.
What are your weaknesses?
Can you combine them with your strengths?
