There are billions of people in this world but I guarantee that none of them are perfect. Everyone has places they shine, but nobody is immune from areas they are dim. Sure, Superman excels in almost every aspect but if you were searching for a companion to camp with on Mount Kryptonite, he’d be a poor candidate.
With that being said, I have decided to summarize my strengths and weaknesses to showcase to the world. It’s unfeasible to be successful in every facet of life so I won’t bother trying. Instead, I’m going to publicize my assets and liabilities to inform people of my limitations. This will guide everyone to draw from my expertise and avoid my deficiencies.
For instance, if you desired driving directions more precise then “the freeway is about 5 songs south of here” or a proof reader to check the grammar on you’re résumé, then you’d already know to skip my input. Conversely, if you desired an innovative excuse for a late arrival to the office like “was sidetracked rescuing cute bunnies drowning in the lake” or were doing some Autumn cleaning that required recycling leftover summer ales to clear room for Octoberfest and pumpkin lagers, I’d be the choice to pop into your head.
The goal of listing my traits is to confine the expectations held of me. The last thing I want to do is to let anyone down or be misleading. Placing my capabilities in stone will prevent people from dreaming I can aid with something I’m unsuited for. If a friend asked me to erect a shelf on their dining room wall, I’d oblige out of guilt, but the safety of any delicates placed on it would be in jeopardy.
Having an over-fixation on becoming perfect will only result in getting caught hiding weaknesses. That leads to frustrated situations where all parties result in being disappointed. Accepting my failures as a lost cause will guide all attention towards my successes. That will increase the outcome of positive conclusions and increase smiles all around. Let me stick to my strengths to do my part in making the world a flawless place.
Now without any further delay, here are my strengths and weaknesses:
