Mainly Mattias Posted May 24, 2015 Share Posted May 24, 2015 About a year or so ago, I came across this work view that you should NOT follow the adage of "Follow your dreams; anything is possible if you try hard enough." You should figure out what you're good at and do that instead. The thinking behind it was that anything is possible by ANYONE, but it's a matter of how much effort is put into it. Someone who has a natural talent for math(s) (for example) requires less of a learning curve, training time, personal effort, and suffers less frustration than someone who lacks talent for math(s). (ie. It would be more efficient to let a person who has the natural talent, do that particular job, than someone else who would have to work 3 times as hard to do the same thing.) Any thoughts? Personally, I'm not good at any one thing. I try pretty hard at everything that I do and end up being a jack of all trades, master of none. Have you guys figured out what you've got super skills in? Are you doing that as a career? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
