I Am Me…INFP
I would really love to be more scheduled and organized. I would love to plan out my day and then work my plan, checking off each item as I go. Well, I say I would love this and yet for some reason this is not how I work. Truth be told, being scheduled and organized is not how I work best.
So, I am making a vow right here and now to just accept who I am. It has worked for me. I’m no longer going to pretend to be someone I am not. It only leads to increased stress when I try to box myself in to being someone I am not. While my way of getting things done hasn’t always worked for others, I think I do a very good job of finishing work on time or even early. Just because I do this work in a pressure-prompted way, doesn’t mean it won’t be good.
No big event has triggered this announcement. I just thought I would put it out there. Maybe it will help others who get down on themselves for not doing things like they have been told they are supposed to do them. All our lives we have been told to complete work within a particular structure. Remember grade school: the early bird gets the worm?
If you are a parent, I hope you will take this into consideration with your own children. If you tend to be more scheduled, while your child is more open-ended, I hope you will allow him or her to explore the preferences with which he or she was born.
Thanks for reading.
