I don’t attempt to compensate for my weakness because the term compensate implies an exchange based on needed something extra to make up for something else.
I seek to understand, anticipate and address my weaknesses through effective risk management, decision making and critical reflection.
Weakness on its own is not a ‘deficiency’ or something to hide or be ashamed of. When combined with actions that are ill conceived, weakness manifests and has potentially negative outcomes.
When dealt with appropriately, weakness is part of a state of being that offers one a route map to avoid and one to follow.
