Job Opportunity Confusion

Hi Brooke,

I was offered a job. It checks off a lot of my boxes with the exception of one thing. There is a good portion of the job that will require an area of that I don’t like to do. I don’t like to do it because it’s something that involves a lot of technical expertise and detail work that, in the past, I have found challenging and a skill that doesn’t seem to come naturally to me.

Everything else about the job I love -seems to have great people working there; I love the company’s mission; the other tasks are in areas where I could add a lot of value.
However, this one piece above would be a large aspect of the job as well that keeps nagging at me. I don’t want to be feeling like I’m constantly swimming upstream and want to make sure I’m using my natural strengths.

My question is: do I just change my thoughts around this to thoughts like:
This is just the 50% that’s not good.
Even though right now I thing I’m not naturally good at it, I can learn how to be better.
There’s no such thing as “natural” strengths. I just need more practice.

Or is this just not the right job for me?

You are an amazing coach. Could you also be an amazing ___________________ (fill in the blank with something that you’re not currently amazing at)?

Could you and your husband switch roles in your company and end up being just as good in those jobs?
