At any one time, there is only one piece of real estate that we can “own” in another person’s mind. We like to pretend that we are marvelously complicated individuals who multi-task and that others know this about us. The truth is that we often need to find that aspect of ourselves that makes us most unique.
In a recent post, Greg McKeown, said, “Being able to do many things is important in many jobs today. Broad understanding also is a must. But developing greater discernment about what is distinctive about us can be a great advantage. Instead of simply doing more things we need to find, at every phase in our careers, our highest point of contribution.”
