Concentrate on strengths, not weaknesses

(from an IBD article)

Pour more energy into advancing your strengths says Marcus Buckingham, author of Go Put Your Strengths to Work. Your strengths are not necessarily what you’re good at, but activities that make you feel strong (you feel competent, drawn to it, your mind is energetic, you don’t struggle to concentrate).

How do you find out what your strengths are?

Get to know yourself (what you like and why). Once you know your strengths, think of the things you can do. Make a plan. This will force you to think things through. Act today. It’s an incremental process. You must take steps toward your goals regularly, however small.
