Grasp this for an awesome takeaway:
“Just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you should do it.”
Validation from Alethea Cheng Fitzpatrick, this week’s guest on my podcast, Girlfriend, We Need To Talk, and she didn’t stop there. She further stated that if we’re good at something, we often feel like we should do more of it, when, in actual fact, it isn’t aligned with who we truly are. What is? That thing that naturally energizes us, and I’ll bet you have a pretty good idea of what that is.
Makes perfect sense to me. I’ve often struggled with this, being a creative, and Alethea’s work with diversity, inclusion, gender and race equity, really shone the light on why. There are so many factors involved in the societal shaping of who we are, and she’s got a solid handle on them all.
I learned a lot through interviewing Alethea, and you’ll learn a lot by listening in. You can access her episode on iHeart Radio, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Podcast, or by clicking here.
