The (Practice) Game of Life

As coaches, we often reference strengths and weaknesses. Strengths are always fun, and weaknesses usually are either the mark of opportunity or the mark of frustration depending on the perspective.

Have you allowed yourself the “slack” to actually have weaknesses? It’s a simple question that often comes with a tricky answer.

It’s rare that people are completely squared away with being a bit broken. If you find yourself only being open to the idea of having weaknesses to a certain extent, then you likely won’t have the chance to begin your journey as a ”work in progress.”

And, that folks, is just denial.

Settle in to the idea that you have real, glaring weaknesses. Life, then, instead of a show of talent and skill is, rather, a practice game. You’re a work in progress.

Get to it.
