From Field Day to Pizza Day, Opposite Day definitely ranks among my top 5 made-up elementary school holidays.

Sure, it was an excuse to finally wear my clothes backwards in the very influential style of Kris Kross. . .

Yet, in the latter years, we as adults forget its value. 

So this week, in honor of the May theme “overlooked and underestimated” we’re exploring the power of opposites.

If you haven’t seen Avengers #endgame, it’s totally worth the three hours and 2 mins out of your day.

If anything, most post-movie conversations invariably lead to the question: what’s your superpower?  (I’m definitely partial to Dr. Strange’s talent of manipulating time).  But, honestly, it’s good question.

In the professional world we focus so much on our strengths, that we forget that our weaknesses can be our personal kryptonite. 

So here’s the handy Opposite Method I use to map out my individualized Achilles heel, or the potential de-railers to my success  . . .

Start by identifying your top 3 talents.  Then, the corresponding weakness.  And, finally, your personal life hack to avoid getting off track.  For example:

Flaws are like pronouns.  Everyone has them.  They don’t go way just because we ignore them.  Indeed, with a few minutes of focused reflection you can make good on the sage interview advice of “turning your weaknesses into strengths.”

Tell us what life hacks do you use to transform your weaknesses?

Cheers,

Venture Cafe Miami
