Note: This is Part 2 in a four-part series on Average Potential. Part 1 unpacks the meaning of "average" and tees up a twist that I argue is a more accurate representation of true averageness. Click to read Part 1.
"You are (roughly) average."
This is a quote from Tom Bilyeu (of Quest Nutrition and Impact Theory).
You can develop outward, and outward, and outward along that qualitative spectrum, in either or both directions, as needed.
In your interactions in the world, you're seen as a simplified version of you (both by others and by yourself).
- Your unique, average complexity is of higher value than you may have expected - because you're truly the only person in the world who can bring the things that you can bring in the dynamic mixture with which you can bring it in.
- Your dynamism allows you to adapt to any situation in ways that you might have thought were impossible for you.
- You are extremely interesting and non-static.
Your story adds to the richness of who you are.
But the highest value is in the breadth and dynamism itself -- not in the singular extreme capacity.
Each week, I do a deep-dive into the question of living meaningfully.
