rapping flight attendant: reflections on strengths

I just saw this on Twitter from two people I follow, each one posting a different video…which was interesting! Here’s the news report:

Or if you want the full version of the rap:

I love it when people put their creativity to work and make it fun for everyone!

I’m a big fan of StrengthsFinders. This video is an example of how when someone takes something they are good at and focus on their strengths, how many people benefit.

I really love how God has made everyone different and unique. One of the things I really love is helping other people discover their strengths… and I continue to learn about my own.

I had a conversation with a friend last night where I bemoaned that I was bad at maintenance, and my friend encouraged me to develop skills to get better. So I have a question: I am organized and can put it on my to-do list, but I am also forgetful and may overlook it on my to-do list. And then, there’s the problem that because I don’t naturally think of maintenance, I tend to not even think about it until the first incident falls through the cracks.

So, on one hand, I can limp along and try to maintain things. But on the other hand, I think I also need to make it top priority to delegate the maintenance items.

The problem comes when I don’t have anyone to delegate maintenance to. Then I am stuck doing it myself, and I continue to limp along where I am not strong.

Anyway, this video was a good reminder to me to focus on what I do well. I also know if I stay away from things I don’t do well, I will never do a rap!
