Good Monday Morning!
You probably have a list of things to do around your house. You might be very handy, or in a relationship with someone who is very handy.
I am single, and not very handy. The solution?
I found a MacGyver that can come in and do “the list.” I have a great guy- a retired engineer …he is neat, and an excellent guy to work with. Doors have been hung, things have been fixed.
One of the projects I delegated was to fix a sump pump in my basement. We were discussing the issue when he asked me a very simple question:
“Alan, did you read the manual?”
I paused for a moment, before responding,
“Harley, I don’t read manuals. I read people.“
What is the moral of the story?
You have to know your strengths and weaknesses. In a poll by Gallop called the Strengthfinder Survey of 1.2 Million professionals in 60 countries, only 17% knew their specific strengths & weaknesses.
When you know your strengths and are secure in that reality, your world is a much better place to be in.
My weaknesses are Harley’s strengths.
… And my dry basement thanks me.
Give me a shout!
