What people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things.

What are you good at?

As often as you can, do something that you’re good at. Even if it is not part of your job, even if it doesn’t immediately advance your career or earn you money, do something that you’re good at.

It will give you confidence. It will give you a valuable sense of satisfaction. It will give you practice at being effective. It will remind you of all your other accomplishments. It will get you in the habit of achieving, and will prompt you to expect the best of yourself.

Even more importantly, doing what you’re good at will tap into the very real wealth that lies hidden inside of you. The surest way to accomplish anything, to reach any goal, is to utilize the best that is within you.

Regularly do something you’re good at, and you’ll get good at accomplishing whatever you want.

— Ralph Marston
