Learning how to manage yourself is a highly personal journey. If you don’t have a good handle on yourself, you won’t have a good handle on external factors.
No matter what obstacles you face, you first need to go deep in understanding and knowing yourself. This includes knowing your strengths, your comfort zone, your core values, biases, and blind spots.
When you fully understand yourself, you can start working towards your true north.
What Are Your Superpowers?
When asked to list their strengths and weaknesses, people often find it more difficult to write their strengths than their weaknesses. We are all too well aware of our weaknesses but we are somewhat blind to our strengths.
An easy way to start listing your strengths is to pay attention to how people respond to you in various situations. Do your friends open up to you because you are a great listener? Or perhaps you are the one that everyone turns to when a decision has to be made for a group. Maybe your work colleagues ask you to plan the office Christmas party because you are social, outgoing, and popular with your peers.
The opposite is true. If you are not a confident public speaker, putting all your energy and effort into speaking to a live audience is going to be a waste of your resources. Instead, encourage someone else who is comfortable and thrives under the spotlight.
Understand the environment and context in which you are at your best. When do you come alive and use the best of your abilities? Because before you start leading others, you have to lead yourself.
