I got asked this awhile ago in a course and I am really stuck. So thought I would share and see how you respond to the following:
Name two things you are incredible at.
Not ‘good at’, not ‘okay at’, but INCREDIBLE at.
Wow, how hard is that?
I am really struggling.
The interesting thing is that we could name a million things we are horrible at, but don’t focus or remember or can’t seem to find the positive! Part of this may be because even if others think of us as incredible at something, we still want to be better at that thing. We may see the problems or errors in that thing we are incredible at where others cannot.
So, I think one thing I am really good at (I hesitate to use incredible) is seeing two dimensional drawings in three dimensions. I really can look at a floor plan and to a great extent a contours map, and build it up and ‘see’ the inside, the rise and fall, the edges and walls.
I also think I’m a very good goal setter (again with the hesitation to use incredible… interesting). I can set a goal and work well backwards, formulating the plan and the tools and everything to make the progression forward. I’m not necessarily the greatest goal achiever but that’s a different skill all together!
How would you answer that question? What are you incredible at?
