This was a very much last-minute opportunity for me and I’m happy Alejo Lopez posted about it so I could clear my schedule and join in the learning and love.
I have read several of Gay’s books and am aligned well with his ideas.
Nailing down and working within one’s Zone of Genius is something that everyone could benefit from. When we can stay active in those areas that bring us the most joy and tap into our greatest aptitude, we can make the biggest positive impact on the world.
Gay’s talk was very much centered on the thinking he shared in “The Big Leap”. If you haven’t read it, pick up a copy.
I had a lot of takeaways from the afternoon’s conversations:
- Working on oneself is the first step in making a huge impact on the world at large. Commit (work on yourself), Manifest (work on your leadership), Implement (work on your company), THEN Inspire (work on the world).
- Be willing to extend the time you allow yourself to enjoy things going well in all areas of your life, then COMMIT to extending that time.
- Be open to learning, trying, and executing new ideas.
So I am going to invest a bit of time to fully understand and embrace my Zone of Genius, and commit to working within this zone 100% of the time.
The first question to answer (and I pose this to all of you):
