I make it happen. How I workóI have a picture in my head on how things will be, and Iím totally involved in the here and now. I am go, go, go. And that creates a lot of successes. I just dodge my way through the sparks and problems. Iím very task oriented. I like to do something, get it done, and move to the next thing. I love circumstances where itís a challenge. Iím a doer. Whatís the mission and how are we getting there? Letís work together. Letís go. Throw any obstacle, Iíll find a way.
Working through people is the way to get things done. All of my energy, fun, and most uplifting experiences are focused around people. I donít beat around the bush. Sometimes I have to tone it down a little bitópeople may read me the wrong way. Iím very comfortable working either together as a team or individually. I like having flexibility, options, negotiating points. Some people need somebody to be very clear, very direct, and very to the point. Thatís how I operate.
And work needs to be mutually enjoyable for all of the parties involved. Celebrate achievements. Recognition or reward runs very high in my value system.
I love the challenge of creating something pleasing to the eye. I like the order, to walk into a place thatís totally chaotic, nothingís happening, and thereís a great opportunity to straighten things out. I like to get the job of placing all the stuff, making it right so it works.
I admit I like to be in control and yet Iím kind of easygoing in that I just want freedom. Freedom to me is leave me alone, let me do it. Anything that constrains me around that I donít like and kind of rebel against. I donít like to be told what to do or what to think. And although I know itís good for me, I donít like feedback either. It takes a lot to rattle me, and even then I just go on. I tend not to dwell on things, but sometimes I have a tendency to imagine worst-case scenarios, especially when I am stressed.
If I donít respect someone, I avoid them. If I can find another way to do business I will. I surround myself with people that I feel comfortable with, but theyíre totally my selection. I like taking on something that I want to do and getting it done and seeing results, keeping things moving along just to see that I have met some goalsóa feeling of accomplishment in a day. Iíll always take bigger risks if I feel confident enough. Then Iíll work with it for a while, and if I see itís not going anywhere, I just move on and go from there. I guess that summarizes how I deal with situations.
