The Talented Mr. (Miss) You!

I love to read and I love to write, but no matter how hard I try when I write, I always feel like my ideas and words are mediocre at best, and every one else is a brilliant literary savant.

I frequent Jon Acuff’s blog, made famous by his comical and witty book “Stuff Christians Like” (my review here) and more recently “Quitter” (great book!), and I was blown away by a recent post titled “The talent we have the hardest time recognizing is our own.

He posted a video by a guy named Derek Sivers which sums it up pretty well.

Derek asks at the end of the short video, and I would like your thoughts as well, “Are you holding back something that’s too “obvious” to share?”

Mine is writing.


The talent we have the hardest time recognizing is our own.

    Believe it or not I was pretty good at shooting things from helicopters during the day and at night. Only a few people got to see those mad skills! maybe not what you were looking for, but there it is…obvious and unknown.
