You know I am all about the thought-provoking posts.
A couple days ago my good buddy Brian asked me what my best quality was. I shot back an answer that seemed reasonable. He shook his head and said, “No. I want you to think about this. I want you to take a few hours, if not the whole day. Really think about it. Then tell me. I think you’ll be surprised how refined your answer becomes, and the self awareness you’ll call upon to get there.”
I’m always up for a good mental challenge. Especially something about myself – my favorite subject. (sarcasm)
As usual, Brian was insightful. As I considered my answer more thoughtfully, it indeed became more refined, more sophisticated. Probably more accurate too.
I challenge you to do the same thing. Think about what your best quality is. REALLY think about it over a series of accumulative hours. A full day even better. Then come back here and post it if you’d like (I always love to hear about people’s strengths) – but more importantly, post it someplace for yourself to see.
After I wrote down my best quality, I felt a strange sense of self pride in my answer. I believe this is accurate, and I like this quality about myself.
My best quality: My intensity. I live (and love) front and center, out loud, and like I mean it. When push comes to shove, I’m a great one to have in your corner.
