Project 13: Strengths and Weaknesses

Okay, before you read any further try this for yourself.  Draw a line down the middle of a blank sheet of paper.  On one side list all of your strengths and on the other side all of your weaknesses.  Three minute time limit!






Watching people go through this exercise in a classroom setting is very interesting. First, I like to see which side of the paper the strengths and the weaknesses go on since there was no instruction regarding that (my strengths were on the left and the weaknesses on the right - what about yours?). Next, I like to see which side they spend the most time on. Many seem to have a much easier time listing weaknesses rather than strengths; what about you?

As for me, I am somewhat pleased to say my strengths list was a little longer than the weaknesses list. Not much, just a little. The disappointing fact, looking at the list I made a few years ago, is that many of the weaknesses on the list are still operating in my life - keeping me from being the person I want to be. There has been some progress, but not as much as I would have liked. So, this review is helpful. I will use this reflection as a challenge to continue working on removing those irritating roadblocks and building on those strengths. How about you?

In the next project we'll take a closer look at this exercise.
