Kon Leong is co-founder, president and chief executive of ZL Technologies in San Jose, California. Adam Bryant of the New York Times recently caught up to him and chatted about leadership and life and advice for students fresh out of college. "Experiment," he says. "You can go in any direction. So experiment and you'll have a much better chance of finding your sweet spot. And the sweet spot is the intersection between what you're really good at and what you love to do. A lot of people would kill for that because, at 65, they're retiring and never found it. Try to find your sweet spot and, once you find it, invest in it."

Yes, to be spiritually and vocationally alive you must lean into your own God-breathed originality. There are so many bullying voices--inside and outside your head. If you can refuse them and find the sweet spot God's made you for--what you're good at and what you love to do you'll not only live a better live, you'll made life better for others.

Intention: Today, I'll take note of those times when I'm in the zone, doing me and doing me well. I'll look for those times when I'm happy, feeling good, and see if I'm doing things well at the same time. That'll tell me something I need to hold on to.
