Lesson Learned: What makes me tick

This is what I will have my kid do in high school. You go around all day with a pad and write down the things that give you energy and the things that drain your energy. It helps you to think about the kind of work you will be suited for so that you can be as effective as possible. The real point is one of the chapters, “You’ll Never Find the Perfect Job”. When you realize this the job you have becomes extremely valuable because you can make it fit who you are. You begin to do the things you are good at while letting others take the things that you are weak at.
