Aimee Montgomery, thank you so much for your response to my article and sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the book. I believe you are correct that we shouldn’t try to become what you’re not, and focus on one’s gifts. My conclusion from Gladwell is that certain phenomena are successful when individual’s gifts when utilized well but also under the right circumstances. I also believe that being pushed out of one’s comfort zone can make one more well rounded and better recognize group dynamics in the professional setting. I’ll never be a great salesperson, sure, but having greater knowledge of the attributes of a salesperson allows me to seek them out for my network. Thanks again!
