I've always started the labyrinth at the end to not hit roadblocks.
I'd win at pool: not because I got all my balls in, but because I studied my opponent and would line the balls up so he'd sink the 8-Ball.
I did well on multiple choice tests. Not because I knew the answers, but because I'm a great guesser and could deduce what the answer wasn't.
I couldn't tell you the name of the strategy to implement for proper change management and performance excellence. I can flip your company upside down and execute it without batting a lash, just don't ask me what that strategy is called.
I get so passionate and frustrated when I see others in power make hasty choices. I feel powerless when I can't stop it. I battle feelings to decide if I should trudge on, making do with the pieces, or throw in the towel & shut down.
I love people, yet I'm socially awkward.
I want to lead, yet I don't wish to be noticed.
I want rest, yet I don't want to shut my mind off to sleep.
I love the sun and I love music, yet I have an aversion to anything too bright... Or too noisy...
I'm vegetarian yet sometimes I even feel sad for broccoli if I eat it.
I praise others for their uniqueness and imperfections. I remind others that low expectations are the secret to happiness. Secretly I'm a closet perfectionist and cry if I don't exceed my own high expectations. Always aware I'm not delivering my full potential.
I know I have purpose here, yet feel lost.
Why does life have to be a complicated hot mess?
