Recognize My Gifts and Delegate the Rest

I picked a card from a deck called Plant Seeds and Pick the Blooms - It said:

Recognize My Gifts and Delegate the Rest

We cannot be everything for everybody, nor should we try. Everyone is blessed with unique gifts. Recognize what you are good at, and don't judge yourself harshly for things you don't do well. Don't be afraid to seek help, or to delegate tasks and responsibilities to those who have more knowledge and skills than you in certain areas.

Action: Make a list of areas - business or personal - you need help with. Be it sorting out your finances or explaining the exercise machines at the gym, put alongside each the name of a colleague or friend who could help you. Then add how you can bring your personal gifts to that person's life to reciprocate.
