Finding your own genius that you can contribute to your special audience is the biggest key to unlocking a remote business that is tailored just for you. Your genius can be defined as the intersection between your passion, knowledge and flow.
When you find yourself in the flow it is usually a part of your genius. There will be more to your genius than just this small thinking experiment but finding some of your genius is always a step in the right direction. For this thought experiment, take business and money making totally out of the equation, think only about you and your interests.
Write some notes about these questions for yourself:
- What are five things that you just love to do and could spend hours doing them?
- After you have five things, ask yourself, "Why do I know that I'm good at this?" and write some notes.
- Have a look at the list of five things, which two have you totally lost track of time when doing or creating something for it?
- Are these the same two where, if you could do nothing else with your day except these two, you would still be super excited to start your day and get cracking on them?
There are two things that are within your genius!
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” — Howard Thurman
I’ve been learning self-growth, productivity, online education and various eclectic interests for quite a few years now, picking up incredible, life-long lessons along that way. I have decided to document some of my insights weekly in the form of one short-form article about 2-3 minutes in reading time which is enough time to finish your coffee/tea.
I’d love to have you join us!
