This is the 6th of 31 blog posts that I am going to write in 31 days.
Is it just me or is it easier to pick out the personality traits that you are not proud of. I wrote a post yesterday about the personality traits that I am proud of and it took me far more time to write than today’s post has.
1. Procrastinating – There are times when I am not quite as bad at putting things off until the last minute but for the most part this is how I operate. I like to tell myself that I work better under pressure and except for on a rare occasion I can always remember getting everything done that needed to get done. I know that being more proactive might be less stressful but I have tried and tried to get batter at this and have now come to accept the fact it is who I am. Maybe having a son that I don’t want to have the same trait will make me become better at this. We shall see!
2. Forgetful – It is not like I forget everything but I wish I was better at remembering names and dates among other things. A perfect example of how my brain works is my wife and I were on vacation in Jamaica before we were married and we met a ton of new people. My wife remembered most if not all of their names and I was lucky to remember one or two couples names. The one thing I did remember about most of the couples that we met was where they were from. So again it is not like I forget everything it is just that I seem to forget things that other people seem to think is important!
3. Easily Distracted – I see this quite a bit when I don’t make a list of things that I want to get done for the day. Even with a list I find myself starting multiple tasks before I complete one specific task. I usually catch myself doing this mostly when I am working and I find that I have multiple browser windows open with WAY too many tabs open in each window. I usually have to work my way backward and will find why I went off on a tangent and it is usually because I am trying to solve a problem. Either way without my list of things I want to get done this can often lead to not being as productive as I could have been that day.
