Quest prompt 11:
Your Brave Race
Visionary: Todd Henry of Accidental Creative
It takes bravery to know your strengths and operate diligently within them. Are you running your race, or someone else’s?
Definitely my own, which can be rough…inconsistent income, sometimes unclear direction, no one to motivate me but me, having to find time and energy between paying projects to work on what’s most important…
And though I agree that knowing my strengths is important, it has become clear over the last few years that it’s just as important to know my weaknesses. Things like keeping up my physical stamina, making and sticking to schedules, staying on track with my priorities.
It’s also important to be able to walk away from things I may be very, very good at that drain me instead of feed me. Because I believe that our true strengths aren’t just the things we’re good at, they are the things that feed us, giving us the strength to feed others.
