Today’s topic is: My Greatest Weakness
This is surprisingly hard, because I don’t deny I have faults (I’m impatient, type A+++, a perfectionist, I have a temper), but I don’t necessarily consider those things “weaknesses”.
After much agonizing to find a legitimate “weakness” I came up with: being overwhelmed.
I can juggle a lot of things. I’m a skilled multi-tasker. But even so, now and then I have SO much to do, and it’s all wicked important and needs to be done yesterday that… I freeze up. I can’t do ANYTHING because I’m utterly overwhelmed. It makes me mad when this happens because I recognize that staring blankly at the computer isn’t HELPING, not even a little bit, and just starting something would be better than nothing, but I just can’t.
Worse, worrying about it makes everything worse. The best thing I can do is walk away. Get outside. Play fetch with the dogs. Wash the dishes. Do something routine and simple. Once I step back, I can see more clearly and begin to organize things in an order that can be dealt with.
But, yeah, if you want to knock me off kilter, give me fifty things to do and a deadline of yesterday. I’ll just sit at the desk and drool…
