stick to what you’re good at

Now, that’s not to say you shouldn’t try to learn something new, but you probably excel in some skillset already. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Just get better at what you’re already good at by employing a willingness to learn, adapt, and change. If you’re a Facebook expert, what you knew about Facebook 6 months ago will absolutely not be relevant today.

Additionally, you must be willing to recognize when you stink at something. And that’s ok. You shouldn’t try to be good at everything, that will result in being an inch deep and a mile wide. Excel at something and get help with everything else.

It’s a simple idea, but too many people are afraid to admit incompetency in anything. This handicaps them more than anything fear.
