In my former life as a college student, I spent a lot of time tutoring kids and adults in math so they can attain their GED. The best method of teaching people a subject like math is by relating it to something that my student was interested in. Once you bridge the gap between something they don't know anything about with something you know very well it makes it easier to move forward with the lesson. I realize I have written often about knowing yourself better in order to move forward. Now I want to talk about ways to identify who we are, by comparing it to something we all do naturally. With that being said, please don't hold this blog against me and the next blog since this is a two part blog.
Question: "How do we get to know ourselves on a more intimate level?"
Answer: "By talking about the different kinds of number 2's"
Yep, I said it. So let's begin.
The Easy Pooper- Someone who eats healthy to make sure there aren't any lasting effects to your future health. The end results are easier because all the "hard work" happens in the beginning.
Personality definition- Are you the type of person who does whatever is needed now so you don't have to do more work later? Do you hate being poorly prepared? These people need a plan and structure or else they spin out of control.
A Little is Good Enough Pooper-When it comes time to do the do, after a few days of no do, then voilà a little do, and they are extremely happy. But if you are constantly consuming with little output then backup is bound to happen.
Personality definition-Are you the type who wants to enjoy life today and let tomorrow deal with the problems? Does your future life goals stop at what you are doing this weekend? Setting short term goals and milestones are the best ways to move forward.
The Great Expectation Pooper- When you push and push and pray to God never to do this again and cry when finally, a little poop. Putting all your energy into the same task could hurt you in the long run.
Personality definition- Do you naturally find yourself putting a large amount energy into things and never feel like it was worth the effort? Have you gotten to the point where you have done this for so long that you have grown to expect little in return for all of your efforts? Focus your energy on the results you are looking for and not the actions it takes to get the result. This will open your mind to different options to get your results and keeping options flexible will prevent you from turn bitter by the failed efforts.
I know what you are about to say, "Knecole all this talk about number 2 types makes you the coolest person in the world, but I don't see someone I identify with." Don't worry there are more descriptions coming next week.
If we all do it then in that we are united. ~K
