There's nothing wrong with being bad at something. In fact, knowing what you're bad at is a strength, not a weakness. By recognizing what you're bad at, you can better understand your strengths, work to improve on your weaknesses, and delegate tasks and work with others when you need to complete something that doesn't align with your strengths.
Most of us already have a good idea of the things we're not very good at, but since we only like to think of the positive things about ourselves by nature, we hide from our failures and weaknesses. I decided to create a list of things I suck at to help me concentrate on my strengths and find ways to improve on items I'm not good at. Here's my suck list (there's a lot more than four, but I'll keep it brief).
- Picking Up Subtle Signals
To begin getting on a consistent schedule (I still have a long way to go), I hired a virtual assistant (thanks Ginger Elliott) to create a weekly schedule that will work with my habits and preferences.
- Defeating Anxious Procrastination
- Getting Enough Sleep
Take a couple of minutes to make a list of what you suck at (hopefully you don't suck at making lists!) and several ways you can either improve or delegate those tasks to someone else. If only I could get someone to sleep for me.
