Working for any organization…..
You’ll definitely have opportunities presented to you that are out of your knowledge base… out of your area of wisdom and comfort.
It can be easy to try to avoid these assignments, to not be available, to shun them as ‘not my job.’
It can be easy to be intimidated by a task that stretches us to the max and pushes us to find answers.
But, those are the opportunities…
- the opportunities to learn
- the opportunities to grow
- the opportunities to add value
- the opportunities to get noticed
- the opportunities to serve
We can’t hide from what we don’t know out of the fear of failure and a little aggravation,
that’s not how great people are made.
We accept the opportunities that are handed to us and run to find the answer and complete the task.
In what ways are you being stretched by what’s being asked of you?
