At another time at another place, I had the pleasure of talking with and closely observing software developers and engineer types. While people skills as well as their comfort level in people dealings wasn't their primary gift from what I could observe, when it came to sitting in front of multiple computer screens for long periods of time coding software and solving very complex technical issues, they rocked.
Then there is my good friend Samantha. If she had to write and code software, I am sure that would drive her up the wall. But when it comes to driving business deals, she has the tenacity and the drive like no one else I know. She is simply one of the best when it comes to making the sale, and she absolutely loves it.
As I move around, I observe every single day that each and every person on this earth has their own unique blend of talents and abilities. Each is special in their own unique way and each and everyone adds value in some shape and form.
So whenever I see a sign like the one above, or I hear talk of some gifted individuals, I am left wondering what exactly does being gifted mean. Afterall, isn't everyone gifted?
What do you think?
