If you want to create impact you must be creative as well as organized. For example:
John is extremely creative. He’s a 10 on 10 when it comes to creativity but a 0 on 10 when it comes to organizational skills. He can’t follow his own process. He’s inconsistent and can’t make a deadline.
10 x 0 = 0
Sarah on the other-hand is half as creative as John but with mediocre organizational skills she beats the impact he creates.
5 x 5 = 25
Often times a creative type will ignore their organizational skills or an organized type will ignore their creative skills.
While the real impact will come from making the smallest improvement on your weakness.
