Everyone is said to be expert at something, the problem is it takes some people longer than others to find that one thing that only they can do the best. Some never find that skill about them that makes them stand out from the rest. I fear sometimes that I will fall into the last category, always knowing there is something more I have to offer to the world but never quite grasping what that is.In Shanghai where I proved I was a skilled teacher and shopper . ..
I feel maybe I need to buy the autobiographies of people such as Sir Richard Branson and Lord Alan Sugar, both men I admire and whom have come such a long way in their life times. I need to know if they always had a very clear idea of the path they were going to take, or if they were, like me a bit of a wanderer with a head filled with ideas.
I have given up sharing my ideas with the other half, he doesn’t even pretend to be interested in them anymore sue to the speed in which I come up with brilliant charities / businesses / community projects and then within a matter of weeks realise I have neither the resources nor expertise with which to see them through to fruition. My good friend still listens though she will rib me about the pace at which I come to her with my new schemes.
I wonder if there is a market in selling really remarkable ideas on to those with the skills and capital to see them through? If there is I’d certainly be able to do that!Maybe that is my skill, coming up with solutions or enterprises?
Are you the type of person who always knew the career path you wanted to take and then stuck to it, or have you had more of a ‘I just fell into it’ kind of resume?
