How Strong Are You?

Have you ever noticed how there are some things that leave you drained after you do them and some things that leave you energized?  Think about your work week.  You probably have many tasks to accomplish, but there are some you really invest your time and energy into and some that you procrastinate and push off until the end of the week.  

With this in mind, I have decided to write about something that has really helped me grow and develop as a person over the last year.

Why write about this subject?  You may ponder...

Many believe that you are wired by God with certain gifts/talents. (including the blog writer)   People today in leadership call these your "STRENGTHS". 

The key to your greatness is to find your strengths, which is where your uniqueness lies, and then understanding and engaging them daily.

So for you, my readers, I will summarize a book by Tom Rath, titled Strengths Finder 2.0 over the next week.

First let me start with a quote to wet your appetite:  "You cannot be anything you want to be -but you can be a lot more of who you already are."

Far too many people spend a lifetime headed in the wrong direction.  They go not only from the CRADLE to the CUBICLE, but then to the CASKET.
