Focus On Your Unique Genius

I have worked with lots of successful people.  They all have one thing in common:

They find what they’re great at, genius at, and they figure out a way to spend most of their time doing that thing and avoid the things they are only ok or bad at.

Warren Buffet – spends his days poring through company financials.  He tried operation management once early in his career and was dismal.

Michael Jordan – playing basketball – he couldn’t even switch sports successfully.

Bob Dylan – if singer/songwriter had not been available to him, surely he would have been homeless.  Can you imagine Dylan surviving as a Walmart greeter?

Focus on your genius.  If your work feels like fun, you will be a fearsome competitor.
