LIF 100 - The Big Leap #5 - How to Discover Your Zone of Genius

LIF 100 – The Big Leap #5 – How to Discover Your Zone of Genius

The message of The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks, ties into the DREAM-to-DO message Kent shares on this podcast. That’s why we have created this 7-part series of episodes to talk about how each of us can take “The Big Leap” in our lives, relationships, and careers.

We kicked off The Big Leap series in Episode 096 by defining the Upper Limit Problem and how it works. Next, in Episode 097, we examine the flawed foundation of the Upper Limit Problem. In Episode 098, Kent showed us how to spot Upper Limit Behavior and what steps to take to dissolve it in our daily lives. Last week, in Episode 099, we focused on confronting your fear with your Zone of Genius.

In this episode, Kent shares four “genius questions” and then three “unique-ability” questions designed to help you discover your Zone of Genius.

Tips Shared in this Episode

1) Four genius questions:

  • What do I most love to do? (I love it so much that I can do it for long stretches of time without getting bored or tired.)
  • What work do I that doesn’t seem like work? (I can do this kind of work all day without ever feeling tired or bored.)
  • In my work, what produces the highest ratio of abundance and satisfaction to the amount of time spent? (Even if I only do a few minutes of it, an idea or deeper connection often appears and eventually leads to huge value.)
  • What is my unique ability? (What is my special skill that, when fully realized and put to work, can provide enormous benefits to me and any organization I serve?)

2) Three unique-ability questions:

  • I am at my best when I am ___________________________________
  • When I am at my best, the exact thing I am doing is _________________________________
  • When I am doing this, the thing I love most about it is ________________________________
  • Zone of Genius — Activities you are uniquely suited to do and draw upon your special gifts and strengths.
