I heard an interesting podcast from Malcolm Gladwell and then the same topic was brought up in our small group last week.

We have historically learned to try to work on our areas of weakness so that we can be more well rounded. Studies have shown that we can improve our natural strengths by 50-60%. We can only improve our areas of natural weakness by 1-5%.

This is an interesting observation which leads one to conclude that we are much better delegating the areas that we struggle with and focusing on the areas that we are naturally strong.

Go with what you’re good at doing. You’ll go much further. And you’ll enjoy it much, much more.
