Blog Every Day in May - Ugh! The Bad Stuff! Shh, It's a Secret!
Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits
This prompt is asking me to write the bad stuff about me. Surely your not going to believe I have any bad traits. You all think I'm perfect ? Right?
So I will tell you a story and you can pretend it is about someone else. You can do that, can't you?
First off, I am a procrastinator, I like to think it is because I work best under pressure. Really it's because I just put things off. Sometimes I put things off because I think I am not going to be able to do it that well, so if I put it off maybe something will change and I won't have to do it at all. When I finally attempt the task it is easier to do than I expected and I wonder why I didn't just do it earlier. By putting things off they cause way more stress. If I had just gotten it done I would have saved myself the stress.
I am seeing this trait in my son and I am trying to get him to look at things differently. I told him I try to set my own deadlines. If something has to be done by Friday, I set a deadline to have it done by Wednesday. That helps!
I have mentioned before that I can be a control freak, that's not such a great trait. It can be annoying to many people, myself included. If I am controlling things it means that I don't trust other people to complete something. So if I have to do my job and watch over everyone else doing their job then I am taking on way to much. If I could just assign tasks and trust everyone to hold up their weight and complete their task successfully, I would have less stress.
I talk too much! I am not going to write about it, because I would end up talking too much about it. Maybe that why I enjoy blogging, it gives my a chance to speak uninterrupted. I can say anything I
So I guess these traits are not totally secret, but, really, can you keep this info to yourself? The less people who know these things the better!
Seriously, I should work on these things, but will I?
Do you have some traits that you don't like about yourself?
