Depending on how your wired, you'll spend the majority of your time, living in the: past, present, or future - with a positive or negative outlook on either.
I'm very goal driven and always looking ahead, usually around 90 days at a time.
I find it very hard to look back in detail, and often ask myself "What month of the year is it again? Shit where did the time go!"
Set a target, I'll get it done, I'm a doer, I won't talk to you on the way however! ;)
Small talk isn't a strength of mine, its not getting me anywhere, right?
If you've got a problem, say it like it is, and I'll do my best to accommodate you and sort it out, If you're going to beat around the bush, trying to be polite, and expect me to pick up on your "feelings" - its not going to happen, I'm always looking forward right!?
If you can still walk, and your legs not hanging off your good to go - crack on!
However, I have to reign it in slightly dependant upon certain social occasions, as I can come accross as arrogant, un-relatable, or reserved. When in fact I consider myself as one of the most interested and caring people I know.
I feel as though a lot of the time, I see too many people making small, unimportant decisions, large ones, and wasting their energy on bullshit.
...But thats their bullshit!
And the decisions are important to them, however trivial they may be.
Of recent times, I've been making a conscious effort to "sympathise" and "relate" to peoples issues, if you wish to call it that.
Going into the new year it's an area I'll be looking to improve upon, as I feel its a massive win-win for the parties involved!
I'm going to be spending more time in the present (just like a Buddhist monk) ;)
The point of this post is this:
I (and you) will naturally never fit and relate to everyone you meet, (that'd be a weird world right?!). But it doesn't mean you can't get along, or build greatness together!
You'll generally gel with those of the same personality type, If you're building a business/project however, you're best to build it with those who are total opposite personality types to you, those that have strengths where you're weak, "a yin to your yang".
You don't just want lots of great computer programmers in your new software company, who's going to be the visionary and strategist?
This will create a full picture and enable you to not only do better work, but be happier and more natural in doing it! - (Top Tip - If partnering, make crystal clear each of your roles before the get go, and stick to them!)
How do you know your "personality type" / "strength areas" so to speak?
There are a number of different tests or self diagnoses, my personal preference is this:
Wealth Dynamics Test
It'll cost you $97 about £79 in todays British Ruble, but it may just be the best thing you ever do.
(I'm in no way financially linked to these dudes, however I found the results massively valuable!)
The key to creating anything great effectively, is to first know and understand yourself.
I'll let you guess my profile and where I land on that chart...
Hope this was of some use...
Until next time...
