I’ve been thinking about this for a while, especially since I’ve been trying to find a way to make some extra money to get myself out of debt. What am I really good at? There are a lot of things that I know how to do, and that I enjoy doing, but am I really good at any of them. Here’s a couple examples. I enjoy photography, even though all I have is an old consumer grade 35 mm and a dinky 5 mp digital camera, I still like trying to take interesting and cool photos. So, I decided to sign up and submit a few pictures to a micro stock company. None of my photos were accepted. Now I have to say I kind of expected that, but I thought a couple of them were really good. So, am I just not that good at photography? Was it the camera’s fault? It makes me wonder. I also enjoy making websites. I even know, and continue to learn from time to time, some more advanced coding to do things that add that little extra punch. I’ve thought this would be another good way to make some money, but it seems nobody wants to have a website made, or designed for them…. or maybe they just don’t want it from me. There are a ton of other things I do, like computer repair, filming, making things (building, crocheting, cross stich, etc), painting… the list can go on, but am I really any good at any of that? Honestly right now I want to be really good at something, but I see myself as that guy who can do a lot of things, only somewhat good, instead of who I want to be, the one that does a few things really really well.
