There are 7.8 billion people out there in our world.
There are limited skills. There are limited jobs.
So only a limited number of people will be ‘the best’ in the world for a particular skill. Does that mean, everyone else, will have to settle for the 2nd best or B-team, B-companies, B-jobs, B-pay, B-lives?
The answer is NO. And we already know it because we see almost innumerable successful people around us, every day. Then what are these people excelling at? If they are not ‘the best’ in this world at a particular skill, how are they achieving?
The answer lies in the intersection of skills.
You may be the best coder in the world, but can you also sell your software? (intersection of coding skills & sales skills)
You may be the best gamer in the world, but can you also entertain an audience while live play-streaming? (intersection of gaming skills & entertaining skills)
You may be the most honest politician in the world, but can you put your thoughts into words in front of millions of people? (intersection of honesty, ethics & oratory skills)
Hope you get the drift.
All of us have had varied life experiences, developed different skills, honed our talents distinctively, learnt life-lessons individually. And our unique success lies in this intersection of skills.
