Wouldn’t it make more sense if humans started out mature and knowledgeable and THEN grew younger??
I mean, I’m just beginning to figure things out! Unfortunately, by 9pm though, I can barely stay awake long enough to read much less strategize on saving the world!
It’s also unfortunate that we tend to spend (i.e. waste) so much of our time trying to figure out what it is we’re meant to do in the first place. We don’t have to necessarily save the world to make an impact though; we can simply tidy up our own little corner of it making it a pleasant place to hang out while at the same time offering value to our surrounding neighborhood.
One of the best ways to do this, I think, is by gaining self-awareness.
Understanding our strengths and (maybe even more important) our weaknesses can be very insightful and a great reminder of what we are capable of and also what it is we most love to do (or where we should be putting most of our efforts for the best outcome).
I’m a big fan of personality tests and the one at www.16personalities.com is a fun, quick and painless way to gain this insight. Not only is learning about ourselves helpful but we can also begin to understand why others do the things they do; making our relationships stronger.
I think it’s nothing short of life-changing.
We all have some form of superpower; the sooner we can figure it out and put it to use…the better!
