Join the Interior Designer Chat community this week as we discuss, Soaring With Your Strengths In 2014. Find out what you do well and do more of it. It’s a message that will bring you back to your strengths’ track.
Why do we continue to focus our energies on fixing weaknesses while ignoring strengths?
Have you discovered what you do well and are doing a lot of it? You must totally commit to one strength, being careful not to spread yourself to thin. You must try not to let your strengths distract you.
Find out what you don’t do well and stop doing it. When strengths are not exercised or when they are abused, they fall from grace is swift.
Are you keeping your balance?
To keep a proper balance requires action, and if we would keep opposing forces in check we must constantly adjust to circumstances. Or are you going to the other extremes that your judgment is impaired and you’ve become a fanatic.
i.e. Your designer business had few clients in 2013. In 2013 you were a full-time design blogger with not enough income. Your working all the time and your personal life is suffering.
Are you running a circus act or a business?
One of the circus acts which always fascinates an audience is the tight rope walker. We admire the ability of anyone who can keep under control and keep dangerous extremes and opposing forces in balance. In business you need to constantly reinvent yourself to stay ahead of the competition – and the circus is no different. In business, it is called research and development and in the circus, it is called art-form development.
What does it take to be successful in the design industry?
The time could not be more right for the interior designers, architectures, kitchen and bath professionals, and anyone in the home furnishing industry and a psyche just starting to emerge from an economic and psychological recession.
