This is day 4 of Natalie Sisson's 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge. Today's question was a difficult one to answer. At least, it was for me. You see, I never think of myself as being particularly good at anything. I love to do a lot of things, and I love to do them well. But to say I'm really good at something? Normally, I just wouldn't do that. So, to answer this question, I tricked myself by rephrasing the question slightly: “what am I currently most passionate about learning?” Then, I asked some friends and coworkers what they think I'm good at. Where those two lists overlapped, I accepted it as a potential superpower and thought about how they could help me craft more perfect days.
What I'm currently most passionate about learning
In day 2 of this challenge, I identified my most cherished freedom as the freedom to learn and to teach. At the moment, the topics I'm most passionate about learning are sketchnoting, graphic recording, and videoscribing. I have a continuing interest in personal effectiveness, leadership, and team building, which for me translate to learning to learn and execute, and learning how to teach what I've learned to others.
What others think I'm good at
I feel blessed to have so many friends and coworkers answer my question what they think I'm good at. The gist of the first cluster of answers point to me being able to process lots of information quickly, and turn it into training and action for myself and others with quality, enthusiasm, and empathy. Getting people together, building communities, and relationships with peers is a second cluster of qualities my friends and coworkers ascribe to me. A third cluster is creativity, presenting, drawing, and visualization.
My superpowers and freedom
Distilling what I'm most passionate about learning and what others think I'm good at, the following superpowers emerge:
- Learning and teaching.
- Community building.
- Creative visualization.
My superpowers can help me craft more perfect days in myriad ways. Looking at my previous post in this series, I realize that to make it so I need to learn more about business and entrepreneurship. And put what I've learned into action consistently. It's time to unprocrastinate!
