I sent out some inspirational e-mail yesterday. Basically it's about building on your strengths, and differing weaknesses from limitations. It also describes how motivation makes it all work. And well, there's someone I know who, despite the fact that going a long way already, claims she doesn't know her own strengths.

That case boggled me terribly, and at the same time, I find it interesting.

I wish I told her, her strength is not exactly easy to say with a word. Sort of like, how you describe a white sheet of paper. It's not exactly a pretty thing, but that's the beauty of it. A blank sheet of paper is potential. In other words, you can be anything. Draw on it, fold it into a paper plane or whatever.

But being the practical person that I am, I pursued a course that uses analytical thinking. For me to really catch on to my real strengths, I need a push to start the engine. In other words, the motivator for me is from external factors, i.e. I am not self-motivated.

In other, OTHER words, I am a lazy ass.

I need to change my environment if I need something done.
