How to find your gift

I always wanted to be really good at something, to have a talent. And even though I was certain that I had nothing resembling it, I loved spotting it in other people so much that I turned it into my job.

I started seeing gifts and greatness everywhere…

I saw it unfold on stage last night as the masters and mistresses of spontaneity performed a completely improvised musical version of Cluedo… wacky genius! I saw it in a bulldog rolling down a hill.

Some people’s talent is a superior ability to have fun.

I’m rubbish at improv and no good at rolling down hills. But I’m good at signing up for stuff that I’m rubbish at and making friends along the way and learning new things about how to connect.

And maybe that’s all a talent really is: your special way of connecting to the world and people around you.

So if you’re looking for your talent or gift, instead of asking what you’re good at, try asking what makes you smile/laugh/guffaw so much that when you do it, it makes other people smile/laugh/guffaw too.

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
