What are you more comfortable with — routine and planning, or laissez-faire spontaneity?
I was never one for routines and planning. I leave that to my brother. I am more spontaneous, even though sometimes I tell people I like routines – because it makes it seem like I am actually responsible.
When I had my baby, I never stuck to a feeding schedule. To this day, I remind myself to make a white board with all the tasks I’m supposed to do – like feed the toddler lunch because he is starving and it’s now 2 pm – and that way, no one gets hungry. And laundry gets done.
So I’m pretty hopeless when it comes to such things such as routines and schedules. I do love having some kind of calendar, if only to keep track of the appointments for my work and not leave my clients standing outside my office door wondering if I forgot about them. At least, there, I’m pretty good.
But maybe because I’m actually paid to be there…?
