I'm challenged right now with doing something for work I find fundamentally uncomfortable. I've talked to a few people and despite that, at my core and when I'm back at my place, I know this is a real challenge that doesn't have an easy answer. In the past I have faced challenges. Getting a degree in Economics was stunning. I've never had any intuition in math. Getting that degree took perseverance and a thick skin. I knew if I got bad grades, I could do more and did. Its one of my proudest achievements. Focus?: When have you been faced with something that other people may not considering challenging but you did and succeeded. How was this managed? Alt Focus: What do other people consider challenging that you don't? Are you able to cold call 300 people a day? Can you run a 4.5/40 (sports reference)? Are you 6'2 and built like Dolph Lungren (back in the day) and don't exercise or worry about diet? My good friend, who I went to Cleveland to see, is a patent attorney. I will never be able to do what he does.
