Doing work that matters starts with leaning into your DNA. If you’re 350 pounds and ‘strong like bull’, tennis is not your game. Play football instead.
I could try and design clothes that encourage and inspire people, but I don’t have the DNA of a fashion designer. I have the DNA of a writer. So I write.
What makes up your DNA? What are your strengths? It could be anything. It could be dancing, sewing, cooking, or creating Bible study curriculum for toddlers. What’s important is to recognize your strengths, embrace your genetic make up, and start leveraging them to make an impact.
Don’t be a lineman trying to make the tennis team. Quit the tennis team. Play football, and make an impact.
