“You grow most in your areas of greatest strength. You will improve the most, be the most creative, be the most inquisitive, and bounce back the fastest in those areas where you have already shown some natural advantage over everyone else— your strengths. This doesn’t mean you should ignore your weaknesses. It just means you’ll grow most where you’re already strong.”
If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to finalize where you want to focus your energy and actions in 2018. Research has proven again and again that we are most successful when we focus the majority of our time and attention on nurturing and leveraging our strengths vs. attempting to “fix” our weaknesses. This does not mean ignoring or failing to recognize our weaker aspects. Rather, it is to know ourselves well enough to be able to leverage our strengths to offset our natural weaknesses.
So finish up your 2018 goals and priorities setting with an emphasis on using your strengths to bring the best of yourself to achieving your personal and professional aspirations.
