After coming back from a short trip to Buffalo, NY on May 24, 2019, I thought about a chapter I read in a book entitled, “The Power of Focus.” In this chapter, “It’s Not Hocus-Pocus, It’s All About Focus”, legendary entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker, Jim Rohn states, “Learn how to separate the majors and the minors. A lot of people don’t do well simply because they major in minor things.”
When we major in minor things, we often tend to lose focus when it comes to cultivating and developing our own natural talents. On the contrary, when we are able to eliminate distractions and hone in on what makes us tick, we are then able to identify and focus on our natural talents. For example, after a call I had with Tracy Francis and Kaustubh Ghadge of Indica Digital, I realized that one of my natural talents is helping people to identify and articulate their mission and vision with the world around them. Due to my desire to help further the work of Tracy and Kaustubh, I was able to gain insight about my natural talents and strengths. In essence, it’s important to keep in mind that helping others also enables us to help ourselves along our journey of finding what it is we do best!
