“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” - Oprah Winfrey
We all have our own Unique Ability. A unique ability is comprised of all the things that we do that we are passionate about and that give us energy. My unique ability is finding a better way and sharing it.
When I was learning about Unique Ability, I was given an exercise to determine what I am competent at and what I am not. By going through this exercise, I quickly realized that I love coaching people, but a task such as organizing and retrieving data or other things is something that completely drains me of energy.
When I came to this realization, I knew I needed to have someone around me whose unique ability was organizing and retrieving things. Just as I have chosen to surround myself with people who give me energy, I have also chosen to surround myself with the tasks that give me energy and the people who are good at the tasks that deplete me of my energy.
Last week I shared my experience of choosing to surround myself with positive people. This week I want to share the other half of The Energy Filter tool, The Tasks.
