Know What You Get Then Give It Good

There are some things in this world that I am very, very good at; and some that should come with a warning label just for me.


Cars – I should definitely be restricted to only driving them and not attempting to describe anything about them.


Directions – okay no.  Just no period.


Power tools – I really, really like power tools but the problem is I think I magically transform into Bob Villa with any power tool and that isn’t really the case.


Now, communication – well, that is a different story.


I am very, very good at communication.  Transforming thoughts, value, vision into the written word, that is where I rock.


I also kick butt in coaching and training.  Taking a thought, concept or process and breaking it down for others to not only understand but then implement – well yes, I rock there too.


Also being a very creative and inquisitive person helps my communication.  I like to know the why.


Why do things work the way they do, how does the system work – why, who is involved, what are the moving parts and how do they all work together.  It fascinates me, no matter what the subject.


Although I have had to learn not to do this in my personal life as it tends to drive people crazy.  Think of the conversations between Gigi and Alex in “He’s Just Not That Into You.”   Don’t read into it – it is what it is.


But my point is I know what I get: I get communication.  Now that I know that I can do to use my talents in a very positive way.  That is why I’m a Professional Resume Writer and Coach.


What is it that you get?  What do you love that you get?  Once you figure that out then figure out how to give it good.  Where can you add the most value?  Take away all reasons and doubts and figure out what you get and where can you give it good.


That is where you will find success.  You will bring value to others, create joy within and be doing what you love.  From there all the other reasons and hesitations will take care of themselves because you will be giving good to yourself.
