TELL ME SOMETHING....

I don't know about you guys, but I've always found it much easier to point out the good in others than it is to see, understand and appreciate the good that is in me.

We've been doing a lot of hiring at work lately...and I have the joy of doing most of it...so I've been doing the usual routine of posting job openings, collecting resumes, interviewing potential candidates and calling references.

Lately I've been posing the following question...


What are you best at??

It has been astounding watching these poor souls try to figure out what I want to hear...when the truth will do...LOL.

For me, over time I've discovered I have the ability to make people feel better...feel good...no matter their station in life or their present circumstance. Sometimes its with humor, sometimes encouragement, sometimes its sharing a piece of myself and sometimes its telling them the truth when no one else will.

Please take a moment today to answer that for yourself...
WHAT AM I BEST AT...and take a step to live it. (And if you feel like sharing it with me too, even better. I'd love to hear it and its GOOD MEDICINE!!!

Have a blessed day my friends!!

I'm good at doing a job when it's made my responsibility. I've done things I didn't even know I was capable of doing, because it fell under the realm of my job. A former administrator once told me that he gave me two jobs to do because he knew I'd "make them mine" and succeed where the people before me had failed, even though I had no experience in doing them.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

i think i am best at writing and having a broad vision of things, but my employers seem to think i am best at taking care of the details of their visions (which i find boring)... (not that any of my employers have ever really given me the opportunity to do broad vision things, or to write much for that matter).

I'm best at caring for others. I used to live in with and tend to the elderly. I've an older brother who is developmentally disabled. I assist him and advocate on his behalf. I've another older brother who is suffering AIDS and I help him - he is living with me now. When my parents were ill last year I tended to them. At work I'm a manager and I tend to my customers and try to look out for the training and other needs of my staff. I am a good caretaker. I love helping people.

Actually, I'm really good at fixing things for people, whether it's my business or not, and even if it means I get my ass on the boss' desk for the trouble!
