Opportunity for Growth

Things that we come across exist to further our personal growth in the areas where we need it. Take, for example, my translation work. The kind of translation orders I get almost never seek to engage my creativity and deep knowledge of languages. I already have these qualities in abundance, and there’s no personal growth in doing what you are already great at and feeling good about it.

Instead, I get translation work that targets my weakest spots: attention to detail, meticulousness, and orderliness. I’m creative chaos personified but this work doesn’t reward anybody who is not in love with order and tiny little details.

There is a reason why I ended up doing this kind of work at this stage of my life. I might not know yet what it is but it has to do with becoming more careful and organized.
