I am a bit of a maverick, a rogue, a cowboy you could say. I have an independent and rebellious nature mixed in with a guilty conscience. As you may imagine my lack of interest in asking for permission and or following rules has created a fair amount of trouble for me. I cannot count the number of times someone has been upset with me because I just went and did it, whatever it may be.
The flip side is that I think that I have been able to succeed on some projects because I didn’t hang out waiting for everyone else, I did the work and then moved on. Essentially I dance in the flames and try not to get burned. I am not very graceful, but I don’t bare too many scars either.
One of the most challenging things I have to deal with is authority. I don’t like being told what to do, and yes I know the old adage that no one does, but I don’t buy that. Some people prefer to be told what to do, they don’t like to think and are afraid to color outside of the lines. I am not only not afraid to do so, I am not sure that I am able to. I always was told to focus on staying in the lines.
So what does any of this mean anyway? I don’t have time now to really consider it, but I do so enjoy beginning my day with a new post. So thank you for indulging me, more on this and other things to come.
