I’m a taller dude, so it would be hard for me to be a gymnast, but naturally I’d be more able to play basketball.
The trick is finding a “game’ that you can win at. Work at that.
If you’re having a hard time finding that “game” think of a few things that, with some work, you could become better than 25% of people. Then combine those things. In the book he uses an example of a cartoonist. He’s not the funniest, but can write jokes better than a lot. He’s not the best artist, but can draw better than most. He’s not the best businessman, but he has experience. So he draws cartoons about business... He just created a game that he can win at!
# ⚒️What Am I Working On?
Reorganizing and restructuring my blog bizgrips.com. Almost done with the Digital Foundations Course.
# 🥡Key Takeaway
Don’t try to be the best at everything. Seek for something that you are naturally more inclined to succeed at, and use that to your advantage.
