I get overwhelmed.
When that happens,
I shut down.
Take for example, today. I Deadlines, a presentation to the city, a report for the city, and I am spectacularly behind. Seems to me most people would work harder. Get their butts in gear, start working feverishly until they felt better about their situation. Me? Apparently I like to wallow in my panic. Just let it marinade and soak until I have the inevitable self break-down.
I make lists like it's my job, but I shirk my job like it's an addiction.
No patience. No persistance.
If everything was like dancing, imagine how fast I would have it done.
