"What are you good for?"

The negative air about that question is dangerous, but it's a question we need to ask ourselves from time to time, especially if you're like me and while you have skills, they have been diluted by being in a position that has not utilized them well, or may not even have a title or description that would garner hope from an observer.

My name is Cameron Stevens and I'm responsible for...   

My name is Cameron Stevens and I'm go at...    

My name is Cameron Stevens and I make...

My name is Cameron Stevens and I'm a technical problem solver.

The question becomes, "What is a technical problem solver?"

This is much like, "What are you good for?"

Finding purpose in what I do is challenged by the vagueness of what I profess to be, I am a Jack of I.T. and I need to better define what I am... but I'm having trouble doing this right now. I know I'm good at what I do, I simply need to find a way to define it.

  1. I know some things you're good at... Let's start with:

    You're a good dad;
    You're a good friend;
    You're good at helping people;
    You're good at making people feel noticed and special;

    These just to name a few, I could go on. I know you're getting at technical skills, but the above are way more important in life. A good employer will also recognize some of the above in a person because they would know that these things make an awesome employee.

    Hang in there Brother! Hope to see you soon :-)
