3D Juggling 454: X Factor

We're about to set dates for Coaching for Excellence in 2010. Do let us know if you're interested in finding out more. Whether you're a beginner or experienced, it's a great way to improve your coaching. Simply and effectively.

Claire writes: 'The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing on UK TV every weekend have caused more furore this year than ever before. What is talent? Why do the untalented go through and the more talented get voted off by the public? Who are Jedward anyway... you can tell I'm a Strictly fan!

Whatever the talent shows suggest, talent is more than being good at something. I think that to grow our talents we need to be both good at them and passionate about them. We meet plenty of people every week who are good at their jobs - but it doesn't fit them any more because there is simply no passion there. So where are the organisations who will pay us to use our talents? It may be time to start window shopping . And if an organisation will only pay you to do things which you're good at, and not passionate about, where else can you use your talents? George Lucas said: "Everybody has talent, it's just a matter of moving around until you've discovered what it is." So if you're not sure, start moving - even if that's into using skills in a slightly different way at work, asking your manager if you can get some different experience, or testing out some volunteer work.

Love this? Do us a favour and send it to five people. Who thinks like you? You could send it to someone who needs to start moving
