Our culture of “self-improvement” has probably made us dislike ourselves more than anything else, but the #StrengthsFinder test has a much better way. And it made me cry.

The wife finally got to doing the #StrengthsFinder test after I returned to #Singapore. My wife outshines and out-values every diamond and gem. Her Top-5 talents all come from the Relationship Building domain. This makes her a rare gem. (that's why I chose her. ) Her top 3 talent themes happen to be my lesser themes. (Last few) Together we make a great team!

I recently took the Gallup StrengthsFinder test and confirmed that one of my top strengths is "Achiever". While labeled as a "strength", this can also sometimes be a curse, as it makes it hard to relax. There is always this inner pull to get things done. You know that saying you want something done give it to a busy person? That's totally me. But, I recognize that this "strength" overall can be detrimental to my health, which requires a slow down. Reminder for the other achievers out there.

Anyone else take the #strengthsfinder test? My top 5 strengths are: #Achiever #Responsibility #Discipline #Connectedness #Belief If you know what your top 5 are I'd love to hear 'em! Also would love to hear any stories of how being aware of them has helped you.
