The Zone of Genius is your innate talents combined with your purpose.  Your talent is what you’re naturally good at, and it is unique to you.  Your purpose is your main challenge in life – this may not be so unique.  In fact, many others may have the same challenge, and there may be an opportunity for you to help them while helping yourself.

Laura offers four tips to finding your Zone of Genius:

  • Identify your talent: Ask your colleagues what they see as your unique approach to the work you do. You may have overlooked something about yourself!
  • Identify your challenges: Look at your past. What did you struggle with? What was hard? What did you overcome, and how did you help others?
  • Ask yourself weekly: What are you excited about at work? Are you bored or interested? Why or why not?
  • Look back on your past week: What impact did you have? Does it satisfy you?
