Do you know what your strengths are? How do you make your strengths the focus of your career and life?
There’s a great scene in the 1991 movie, City Slickers, when the old wise cowboy “Curly” – played to Academy Award winning perfection by American actor, Jack Palance – gives Mitch (Billy Crystal) some great advice about focus:
Do one thing, he says, “Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean sh*t.”
“That’s great, but, what’s the one thing?” Mitch responds.
“That’s what you gotta figure out.,” says Curly.
Have you figured out your “one” thing? Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Greg Taylor, Trish Yee, and Lorna Willner of Steam Whistle Brewery. They will share their experience and wisdom on staying focussed in your career and doing “one thing really, really well.”
