Day 358: What Are You Good At?

One of the big questions that I’ve had in the last years, is what am I good at? As someone that is constantly searching for various answers, it’s always interesting to really think about this question. Yet one of the things that has become clear throughout this year is just how few people actually think about this question. So many people think about what they are doing now or what they might be doing soon. They don’t always think about why they do it. In school there are lots of people that spend so much time on a project because they think it will be easy or because they think it will get them a good grade or because they are required to, not because it’s something they are good at and want to do. It’s nice when everything lines up, but there are times in life when we need to pivot. If you know me fairly well, you probably know that I really don’t like carrying about some of the more grammatical and spelling aspects of writing. People always say to not use lots of so’s, and like’s and what not, but that’s just not who I am. I care more about the message than the semantics, and yet there are so many people who are really good at the semantics so they care for me. The reason I bring this up is because sometimes when people differ they fail to recognize that what you might dislike other people are good at.
