For certain values of "something"

As seen in "The Dip" from Seth Godin (http://sethgodin.typepad.com/the_dip/)

..that would imply there are at least 6.6 billion attributes that can be quantified. Sorry to break it to a lot of people, but even if you're one in a billion, there are five more just like you.

If this is true, then the trick is finding out what that thing is.

What if the thing you're the best at isn't all that impressive. I'm really good at shuffling poker chips, for instance. As I'm not any good at poker, I don't see how I could make a career out of that.

That's a soul crushing proposition. If I'm the best in the world, at any one thing- then what is there to aspire towards in that area? I'm already there! Why should I improve my skills- to distance myself from my competition?

Bah. I prefer to be strugglingly mediocre. At least then there's always something to accomplish.

Nonsense. "best" is relative. You can always be better.

To paraphrase a "Mr. Boffo" cartoon:

Mr. Boffo: I believe that every person has an ability that they're the absolute best at in the world.

Nadine: What's your?

Mr. Boffo: I'll show you, but it's kind of gross.

It flies in the face of everything my father has taught me...

LoL

Let's hope that the gift shops don't catch hold of this one, otherwise they'll be in trouble for selling multiple copies of those 'Best Dad/Mom/Step-Daughter-In-Law In The World' mugs.

Nice thought that you could be the best person in the world at combing the hair on your head that lies closest to your ear though. I'm gonna try extra hard when brushing mine this morning, just in case it is me... :)
