What do you stink at?

We are all gifted in certain areas. Our areas of strength. Things we are good at. That we excel in. That bring us joy when working on. How about the things you stink at? That drain you. Your areas of weakness. That take you hours and hours to work on. That you dread at all costs.

Have you figured out What you stink at? Better yet, have you figured out what to do once you've figured out what you stink at?

My suggestion is that once you know your areas of weakness, and things you aren't good at, then start to fill in around those. Hire people or outsource to those who have strengths in your areas of weakness. Assign others on your team responsibility for the areas you don't excel in.

Many of us think that we should spend time working to improve our areas of weakness. Not true. As Maxwell says, if you are a 3 or 4 out of 10 in an area, the best you'll ever be is probably a 5 or 6. However, if you are a 7 or 8 out of 10, then you can be a 9 or 10 with more work and dedication.

Focus on the areas where you are a 7 or higher, not the areas where you are 5 or lower.

Don't try and become great at what you are not good at. Focus on your strengths and hire others to be great in areas you aren't.
