I've never really felt like I was in harms hand when it came to being number one at my level education wise. But,the year before last a new classmate showed up and man was she "bad". She sort of had me on my toes a little, I'd say. So basically, being the caring person that I am I would help her like everytime she needed help. I mean I'd literally put my work aside and explain the work to her and being the smart girl that she is,she'd do her work while I was explaining it to her. So,she would get done and I would be sitting there still writing trying to get mines done. I could've done my work, and told her to wait,but no I put my work aside to meet her needs before my own. If I continue to do this,senior year who'll be standing on stage with the valedictorian seal? She will,when I might've actually deserved it.
I can be doing a million things, but once someone asks me can I do something I'll say yes right away like it's a no brainer. Usually they'll even ask me is it a problem and I'll just go "not at all". I think that this does take away from my work in a way because it's not that my work will turn out terrible,but it'll be an eighty through ninety percent when it was an easy one hundred.
I think this characteristic could be turned into a strength. One for example,it could become a sincere characteristic. I think that could help me in a series of ways. One in particular it could help me accomplish some things in which I want to accomplish. For example I want to become a lawyer. I see this charateristic turning into a strength by me sort of feeling for my clients in the future by just letting them know I do care for them,that I understand where their coming from,etc.In my opinion I could accomplish that by learning how to say no when I have to much on my plate,but not taking it over board by yelling "NO!",but by calmly letting them know that I can't at the moment . Also, by basically knowing how much is too much. I think that I like to think I can do way more than I can handle. I sense to forget sometimes that it's impossible,to do everything! This isn't a one week thing, I know it's going to take me time and practice but I think that if I put in the right amount of effort I can do it!:)
While writing this blog my friend asked me could I do some research for her and I told her "sorry but,I'm busy right now ". See...I'm getting there.:D (That was a joke by the way,lol)
