Book Review: Now, Discover Your Strengths

074320114001_sclzzzzzzz_I bought this book because so many bloggers had this on their reading list and I heard Marcus Buckingham on a CD that I got from Last year’s Leadership Summit.  Let me say: Now,Discover your strengths is a must read for every person on the planet.  This book isn’t just for managers and CEO’s.  This book is for anyone who wants to discover their strengths and spend their lives doing what they have created uniquely by God to do.  The part that really stood out to me was the section on 5 ways to deal with your weaknesses.  This is so huge for me because I feel that I’m not good at something and don’t like doing something, then everyone feels that way.  I’m learning that just isn’t true.  I’m robbing people of opportunities to exel if I don’t just admit that I’m not good at it and theen GET OUT OF THE WAY!  I’m starting to do this.  I’m starting to be realistic about my areas of strength and weakness and now I’m arranging my life in such a way so that I spend the majority of my time doing the things that give our church the greatest impact.  I know this is stuff we know, but just don’t do.  Well, I’m doing it and it feels great!
