Your strengths got you where you are but they are not what’s keeping you from where you want to be. Working alongside them is rewarding work and it comes naturally. That work shows you where you want to go. Give priority for a time to working on your weaknesses. That’s the real bang-for-your-buck labor. It’s courageous work- there are feelings of ineptitude and failure there. It’s where there’s the most to learn. Maybe waking up early and working long comes naturally, but you’re bad at making efficient decisions, don’t know the questions to ask, or afraid of risk involved with trying to get past the grind. Maybe creativity comes naturally so you hole up in your shop with endless drawings and genuinely great new ideas, but nothing gets finished or is tested by the people that support you in your work. What’s hardest? Do that first.
