Time has been flying by these past few weeks, I honestly can't remember what I've even done all I remember is I've been extremely busy and I'm missing the sharing of my weekly goals. I find that when I put my goals out there so everyone can see them (or at least I can pretend everyone does) I feel that I hold myself more accountable.
As wikipedia states: accountability is the acknowledgment and assumption of responsibility for actions
I'm not sure why, actually I am – have you ever heard of Type A personalities?! If you haven't it is from the old Jacob Goldsmith Theory, and you can actually take a test to rate how far you are to either side – A or B, I scored extreme in the A section. So back to the old wikipedia I go for those of you who might not know what this is:
The theory describes a Type A individual as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status conscious, can be sensitive, care for other people, are truthful, impatient, always try to help others, take on more than they can handle, want other people to get to the point, proactive, and obsessed with time management. People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving “workaholics” who multi-task, push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence.
Can you say heart attack waiting to happen? I don't know how I do it all the time but I just do and I've tried to change but it just finds a way to come and creep back. I seriously have times where I am fine and can go with the flow and then bam in the middle of the night (like last night) I wake up in a cold sweat full on panic attack because I don't have the garbage ready to go out, because Wednesday is garbage day around here. If that isn't crazy I don't know what is.
So back to the accountability and goal thingy. I found that during the period of my 90 day stretch when I was putting my goals on her and sharing them with all of you my productivity went through the roof. It was like I had something to prove by accomplishing each and every one of them and I didn't even think about it I just took action. It is really hard to explain unless you know the real me so that is going to be part of my goal over the next few months is to give you an inside look at the real me, scary I know. I'm going to make it pretty simple by just sharing some short little stories and hopefully some tips and tricks you can use along the way, my main goal is to not be so rigid and to have a little fun with life because I don't need a heart attack before I'm 30 – which by the way is just around the corner for me.
You aren't going to want to miss out. Trust me I will share my embarrassing moments and the times that have defined who I am today. I moved around a bit as a kid and had the chance of being hated by every person in school, finding out that your sister will always be your best friend, and I made some great memories along the way.
Have a fantastic rest of the week and you'll be hearing some insider information about me soon enough!
