Talk about taking a long, hard look at yourself in the mirror… Not putting clean clothes in my wardrobe straight away and hanging them over the back of my desk chair instead is a bad habit I have. And one that actually really bugs me about me!
Then there’s not being able to give compliments very well. I always feel stupid saying them or am worried that the other person would think I’m being sarcastic or condescending, so end up not giving them at all.
Worrying about the little details. I’ve noticed in all aspects of my life that, since I want to do the best job I possibly can, I will often not consider a job done until all of the little bits have been completed too. Whether it be cleaning the kitchen and I try to clean all of the nooks and crannies, or in my job, if I can’t get a sentence 100% correct I won’t submit it, causing a delay in the workflow.
#129: When you gaze out your window — real or figurative — do you see the forest first, or the trees?
After a bit of research into the (honestly fascinating) meaning behind this prompt, I’ve come to realise that I sway more towards seeing the trees first. It’s just in my borderline OCD nature. This is visibly evident when I’m in charge of organising an event… I am the only one in the office who will read (and have ever read) through the entire A-Z guides provided by the event hosts! That’s how thorough I am! I’ve always been a firm believer of the phrase ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’, thanks to several GCSE teachers, as it was one of those cringey sayings that was repeated constantly. However, that said, I do have the ability to take a step back from the trees and admire the forest in its entirety!
