3 signs you are entering your zone of genuis

May 5, 2017

One of my favorite books in the world is The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks – especially the part where he talks about the distinction between Zone of Excellence and Zone of Genius.
But the part that has always confused me is – how do I know what my zone of genius is? I’ve finally got that part figured out (yay!) and wanted to share with you the 3 signs that you are bumping up into your zone of genius in today’s new video.

    Thank you Tina! This is where I feel I am standing right now, knocking on the edge of Genius. I am just in the process of reinventing myself and I face daily struggles with my confidence and yet I ultimately know that I am going in the right direction. I have not read this book but it is now on my list. Keep up the great work 🙂

    Perfect timing! This has been on my reading list FOREVER and I finally started it yesterday and am halfway through. It’s so good!!

      Definitely one of my favorites 🙂

    Oh, it’s fun to be reminded of this system! What stood out for me is that your Zone of Excellence will be ripped out from under you. Great reframe of what has probably been going on for my own Dark Night of the Business Soul over the last 4 years, among other things!

    And it has me sitting in the wondering… The event I just finished, through the lens of this framework, TOTALLY feels like I was in my Zone of Genius. More than ever!

    There was so much of it that actually felt ridiculously easy. And this particular skillset of mine is definitely different from what’s out there.

    I’m kind of shaking my head that I didn’t just go for it 4 years ago… But I guess it was all the fear worry and doubt that I had to swashbuckle through first. And also because it has been far from clear, until now.

    Great ponderings, Love… Thank you!

      I hear you – and I think it’s necessary to walk through the zone of excellence to get to the genuis. Not sure we can ‘shortcut’ straight to genuis – but I could be wrong. 😉

      Regardless – your zone of genuis is a beautiful thing my friend!

    Well now, a custom video just for me! I’m inspired to re-read The Big Leap as I’m underway with “re-branding” despite the inconvenience! Thanks for naming it Tina, this process is in the collective, here in the US I attribute it to the most recent election and the fire it lit under many of our sorry behinds!

      Sometimes it does take some change to light the fire under our butts. 😉
