In a recent blog titled, The One Talent, author Jim Melvin wrote that “each and every one of us is born with one talent that supercedes all of our other talents.”
I have been contemplating this in terms of my own life. Usually I feel as if I have several mediocre talents, but no reigning talent. I have often (and rather unaffectionately) referred to myself as a “Jack of all trades, Master of none.” How depressing!
I find it infuriating, to be honest. I tend to agree with the idea that each of us possess many gifts and talents, but one that is more natural (and thus, usually more successful and enjoyable) than the rest. Still, all those mediocre talents that I would never presume to be brilliant with, compel me to chase after them.
So I am curious about a couple of things.
First, do you agree with Jim?
Second, do you know what your “one talent” is? If so, what?
Third, do you know what my “one talent” is? If so, please share!
Fourth, how does one balance the “one talent” with the “many others?”
Thoughts…questions…talents…share it all, folks. I want to hear from you. Triple Magic SemBlog Points on this post only.
