What is your superpower weakness?

February 8, 2019

Yes, you read that right.

What's one trait that is both your superpower and your weakness?

Something that propels you sometimes, but holds you back other times.

My superpower is diving headlong into new projects. When I discover something that interests me, I can immerse myself into it almost instantly, soaking up new knowledge and getting up to speed very fast.

The flipside, the weakness, is that I can be incredibly impatient, as my new knowledge initially far outpaces my skills. Suddenly, I know where to go, what to practice, or what I've been doing wrong. But it often takes time for the new knowledge to transform into a new reality. And I don't like the wait.

So that's my superpower weakness. What's yours?
