Often we overlook our potentially valuable skills because we don’t realize we have them. We don’t understand that the thing we find easy, others find hard. Or the activity we do as a hobby has a high market value.
Finding out what you are good at and you can create value doing isn’t easy. It is a process that takes time and feedback. But whether it’s college or an introspective journey, the most common ways we expect to learn about ourselves are removed from real sources of feedback.
To find out what we do best, we need to get out into the market and start getting feedback.
