I am the type of person who can make split-second decisions with extreme ease and confidence. Sometimes this is a virtue, other times it’s nothing more than impulsiveness.
I’ve been this way for a long time. During my youth, it was absolutely an uphill battle. I would do what felt good and deal with the consequences later. After living through those consequences I’ve come to realize that I need to be more aware of them when making a quick decision.
Never had I considered this a virtue until my old manager (shoutout to Whitney) told me this. It’s weird how we can’t see the best in ourselves until others point it out sometimes. It’s nice to see though because now it’s a strength I can play to. I used to see it only as a weakness, but there’s another side to every story I’ve come to realize.
