This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 4
Natalie (the young lady running the 10 Day Freedom Challenge) calls this the point where I’m to unlock my super powers.
That’s okay, I suppose, but historically in order to make this happen, I’ll need to crash on Earth as a waif from another world. Like this –
Later, I’d begin demonstrating my powers and abilities to the amazement of all…
But enough about that. Let’s talk about what I actually bring to the table – the ability to concentrate, research and synthesize things in order to show a picture to people that they understand.
We’ll take these one at a time to make things easy.
Concentrate. Simple, right? After all, doesn’t everyone have to concentrate from time-to-time to get things accomplished?
Well, yes and no.
You see, most folks actually go through their lives concentrating like this-
That’s the thing about meaningful concentration: either you have it, or you don’t. I’m lucky–even after my incident, it’s still there to take advantage of, making mental tasks easy to work through as well as prioritize. You can count on me to not be distracted by the squirrels that life has running into my field of vision, and to hit my deadlines with regularity.
Research. “Sure,” you say.”Research is a breeze these days. Look at all the tools we have to work with!”
Is it? Really?
True research is more than just being able to type in a word search on the internet and accept the results. It involves drilling down below the surface layers the ‘net gives you, and finding out WHY you get the results you do. Without that essential skill in researching a subject, you run the risk of passing on incomplete or erroneous information!
This could be embarrassing, or worse yet lead to failure that will be laid at your feet.
Synthesize. The ability to pull everything together into an understandable, cohesive whole. If someone were to describe the Unified Field Theory to you in a simple manner, would they be valuable to you?
Of course they would! Maybe you’re not going to go out and discourse on field equations and the like, but you’ll not feel as though the world has completely left you behind, either.
That’s where the ability to synthesize comes into play, because part of it involves taking complex processes and making them more accessible.
Put those three together and you can see my super abilities in action. If I could only come up with a cool name people could know my valuable persona as..something like
