Reflection: Ability and Growth

Ability and Growth

A little reflection at the end of the week…
Growth happens when one’s ability is matched with a challenge.

I was lucky that for most of my career, the challenges that I faced stretched my abilities just enough to grow.

Early on, that happened mostly by accident and sheer dumb luck. Only later on did I start to connect the dots and seek out that channel of growth more deliberately.

But be it by luck or by design, saying yes to interesting challenges that I didn’t know how to solve yet is a pattern that has served me well for many years.
