It’s finally sunk in on me. I’ve got to seriously dial myself back several notches. I’ve realized when I like someone I flip every switch on. You get all of me, all at once and you’d only asked for a glass of water.
Biz meeting yesterday, we’re walking out and a colleague is musing about a discussion between myself and CEO during the meeting. “The two of you can talk about 5 different subjects in 3 sentences, no one can keep up.”
If you don’t know me well enough, I likely may scare the crap out of you. That, or annoy you. Pick one or both. I just hit all the buttons. I’m gonna make a serious effort to slow down. People need time to absorb, just need to allow it to happen.
What I’m not going to do is stop being aggressive, “waiting for things to come to me”, simply isn’t my style. My few accomplishments in life haven’t come because I’ve waited for them. There is never the right opportunity, there are only missed opportunities. So if I like you, you’ll know, maybe before you want to know. Maybe I could adopt different tactics, but at the end of the day, only the end results matter.
In the interim, I’ve giving serious consideration to either getting this Audi R8 or a boyfriend. Can’t figure out which one is cheaper in the long run.
