Reflection about strengths from Amy

The prompt was to think about how my strengths are relevant today and what I can use them for in the future.

It gives you the confidence to stand up for what you believe in.

My strength of creativity has me always looking for interesting and fun ways to do things. This has led me to be creative in jobs that I have had in the past, I have created new structures of new ways of doing things and have really enjoyed doing that. This strength of creativity and the understanding of people around me really helps to make my surroundings enjoyable. 


I would like to think that I believe in doing things that others will benefit from and it is interesting to make the world a better place. These are the things that propel me to continue to create and revise and communicate with others. To be creative, it is also important to hear how the process works for others and to adapt to their feedback. This needs to be something that I keep in mind as well! 

It supports your understanding of your motivation to do things.

Right now it is important to know my strengths because I am trying to start a new business that might be my work for many years to come. I have an idea in my head and I get pretty excited about it when I think about the outcome of the project for me and for students that will be involved in the upcoming years. My strengths of creativity help me envision the outcome and give me lots of ideas to work with while I am moving forward with the project. Because I have good social intelligence, I am always looking for people to work with and I also am able to talk to so many people about the idea and get some input and suggestions along the way. That motivates me.

When I look at these strengths, I also realize that I can implement this project. However, I also realize that those are not enough to manage the daily output and need input to implement the details. 

Some of this I am learning on a daily basis. What is the motivation behind getting things done? It is not money that is the motivating factor, but it is developing something that I am proud of and something that will help students succeed in the world that we are living in today. Because of that, I need to make sure that I put the effort in to create something of value that students will be engaged with throughout the process. 


That could be where my strength of zest comes in. I have a lot of energy and need to create good structure to make sure that the time that I have is spent well.
