You Only Have a Few Strengths

My very wise oldest brother (who leads a large organization) pointed out to me recently that burnout happens when people believe that they need to be strong at everything.

The truth for most of us is that we only do a couple of things really really well.  Leaders sometimes delude themselves into believing that since they’re in charge, they need to be the genius at everything.

But when you operate in a dimension of personality that is low for you, you’re going to burn out.

So ask yourself, “What 2 things do I do incredibly well, as good or better than anyone that I know?”

Focus on spending more of your time doing just those things and you’ll win.
