Am I Good at What I Do Because I Like It or Do I Like It Because I Am Good at It?
On this Monday morning, here is some food for thought (we surely need to feed the brain once in a while, right?). I am asking this question because I would like to know how to direct my energy. How to make sure that I am concentrating my efforts in the right place? Life is too short to wander around for years before realizing that you were going in the wrong direction… though sometimes it happens anyways!
So here is my point:
I am good at something when:
– I enjoy spending time doing it.
– I consider that I do it better than the average Joe.
– I succeed.
– I work hard and never quit.
– I find ways to improve my skills.
I like what I do when:
– I always find time to do it.
– I feel that I am good doing it.
– Making an effort is not too demanding.
– It’s easy for me.
– I see rapid improvements.
As you can see, both considerations are quite similar. When I am good at something, it is often because I like it and vice-versa. And so, should I keep looking at stuff that I am good at or that I like first? Obviously, you can’t be good at everything you try the first time.
For example; I really like golfing, but I am far from considering myself a good golf player! However, I see major improvements each of the past 3 years and I realized that I could become a (relatively) decent golfer (playing in the 90’s). On the other hand, my first game was a 143… not a great start to becoming a good golfer, is it?
So I am asking you: Do you work more on stuff that you are good at or that you really like? Do you see a correlation between the two?
