How to play to your strengths & reclaim time

We’ve been taught to believe we have to ‘do it all’ ourselves. But the reality is, that approach is far from sustainable. The best results are realised when we play to our strengths and mitigate our weaknesses through partnering, outsourcing or eliminating tasks we struggle with.

I was recently interviewed by the fabulous Jade Green for her podcast Barrels and Business. We talk a lot about strengths, but also how you can reclaim 5 – 15 hours in your work week. Sound good?

Here are a few key time stamps, in case you don’t have time to listen to the whole interview

  • What are the Nikki Smith failures? 2:30
  • If you’re not happy in your own business: ‘burning the boat’ or closing a business. 4:30
  • How do people uncover their strengths? 16:40
  • How do mini experiments work? 17:50
  • How does partnering up to take advantage of others’ strengths work? 19:40 -> 31:30
  • How do you help clients to re-claim time? 31:40
  • How you can use strengths to create more harmony at work and at home. 40:30 -> 47:50
  • My surfing journey. 48
