“Industrious” Okay, so, perhaps it is not the quality that you lead with when writing your Match.com profile. What does that mean? Can she build a Hoverboard out of an old toaster oven? Mock if you want, but it is a word I use to describe myself, and I am, personally, quite fond of it. Here is why.
I always thought the World is a big place. There will always be someone who is pretty or smarter or perhaps, easier to get along with than I. Of course; you won’t have to search as long for the later as you would for the first two criteria. However, I can always find a way to get shit done. Now, it might get messy, painful, even hard to watch at times, but I Will Not, Can Not Quit….until “it” is done. People say I am “resilient” and I quietly smile. The truth is that I am not resilient. I feel every setback like it is a knife to my heart. I take everything personally. At lightning speed, I can surmise 20 reasons how I “failed” in any given situation. Then, I pick myself back up and continue the quest. Why? Quite honestly, I don’t think it even occurs to me that there is another option. What is quitting? It is not even in my vocabulary much less my consciousness. Try another way. Approach the challenge from another angle.
So, “industrious” – it fits my like my favorite pair of designer jeans. I guess there is no doubt that my new company, TimeSquared Concierge, will succeed. Right? Come along for the ride. You won’t be disappointed.
