Sitting on Your Talent?

  Decisions Determine Destiny – Thomas S. Monson   All individuals have talents, things they have natural aptitude and skill in. However, individuals often times do not utilize their talents.   This waste of aptitude is not only a disservice to individuals in question, but it is a disservice to their respective communities.   Having talents and either not having an outlet to channel them, or having no desire to channel them, has far reaching consequences that affect more than the potentially talented individual.   For example, consider an individual who is exceptionally gifted in science and with proper training could become a doctor that could save many lives. However, she thinks of science as a trivial subject and pursues a career as an acrobat. This individual’s entire life will be spent training for something that is not her natural talent.   Of course, with practice this individual could become a very good acrobat, but the time and energy spent to become an acrobat is tenfold that of which she would have used had she trained to become a doctor.   This is not to say that becoming a doctor is easy, or that the world does not need acrobats. The point is that if the talent is present do not brush it to the side. Do not simply think, “oh I’m good at it, but it is not for me.” You have the talent for a reason, do not undersell its importance.   Often time’s individuals will bounce from […]

Did you know? Creating your own Personal Balance, Can actually help your Work-Life Balance!

  Article by James Sudakow – Even if you have mastered the art of balancing the Work/life, there is a third element that often gets neglected: you as an individual. In our quest for work-life balance, we as an individual are forgotten for a while.   It’s easy to forget about yourself with all that work and life entail. The gap in the equation is often our own personal balance and emotional needs. Can adding another thing actually help? If it’s the right thing, it can   So, what do you do? There are only so many hours in the day, and all of those hours are claimed by business, family, and maybe some sleep (for good measure). Could adding one more thing to an already packed daily agenda actually assuage the lack of personal balance? Almost counter-intuitively, it did for me and might for you.   I added piano lessons.   I’m an ex-studio musician, so of course I would choose something musical. What I realized was that in the years since I started the businesses and the family grew, my love for music was still there but was not being acted on. I had concluded that there simply wasn’t enough time.   As I contemplated the idea, I said to myself, “How in the world are you going to fit this in?” Even though it was just 30 minutes a week for a lesson and an hour a day for practice, finding calendar time was much easier said […]
