I still want to post about being nice, but the truth is, I really need to be in a nicer mood to do that. Yes, I'm cranky. Got a problem with that?
Ok, so instead I want to talk about Type A and Type B personalities. I am strongly Type B. What are you? You can take a short quiz to find out. I didn't need the quiz to know which I am. But I scored a 17 on this.
Ok, I will admit that there are downsides to being Type B. I do struggle with procrastination and finishing things that I start. Sometimes events go by that I had intended to attend, but somehow missed.
But Type B isn't all bad. And it's hard being Type B in our society. Type A are the driven ones. The ones who get things done and make the world a better place. Type B is looked upon as lazy and wasteful.
But I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love literally smelling the roses. Watching the birds and right now, watching the leaves unfurl for the summer. I would like to have just a bit more A in me. Just enough to help me overcome the procrastination and other issues. But I really don't want to be like all the people I see with their schedules cram packed and buzzing about like bees. It makes me nervous.
If you are a Type A person who would like to slow down a bit I recommend reading the book Margin by Richard A. Swenson M. D. It's a wonderful book for helping you find time in your life to live. In the meanwhile I am reading a book called Overcoming Procrastination by Neil Fiore, PH. D.
So tell me about you. Which type are you and what do you like about it? What would you like to change?
