What are you taking with you?

You will be taking weapons, tools and skills with you on your Quest that you have gathered during our life and career. You need to know what they are and you also need to know which ones you are most capable at, your unique gifts, your secret superpowers.

For some this is easy but for others, generalists like myself, it can be hard to identify the things we are especially good at.

Make a list of all the things you have done in your career, including all the things that you have been trained in. Add in any skills you have developed in your personal life, through your hobbies and pastimes, the groups and organisations you’ve been involved in.

Now go through the list and try to identify those that you 

  • found came to you easily
  • really enjoyed
  • were demonstrably better at others

and conversely

  • found were a struggle and draining to to
  • hated
  • never did satisfactorily

You should also share the list with others and ask them to identify the things they think you are especially good and bad at.

You should now have a list of things that are your real strengths and also a list of things you should avoid doing at all costs.

Now score yourself out of 10 on the scoresheet.
