This thread is about something most try to get around - your limits.
Most time you talk about what you've achieved in live, what you are good in, which trophies you've won ...
But nearly no one likes to talk about what he's unable to do.
But why is it good/important for your well-being? There are a ton of reasons but I will try to focus.
- You remove the pressure to do everything if you tell yourself and others that it's simply not your business.
- You increase your respect for the ones doing it.
- Focus and limiting is a major success key for your career/business.
In relation to my job I'm totally unable to create an usable UI/GUI. This resulted in my limitation to only do backend and focus on APIs, business logic, CLI apps and this kind of stuff. This got me where I am now and others say: yeah, with these backend skills I would also reject to do something else. But it is/was the opposite. My inability to do something else (and telling myself that it's okay) resulted in my focus on backend.
