Well, I am persnickety – in everything I do, but I’m changing. For the better or worse? I really don’t know. I’ll go into every detail so much so that I sometimes irks people, my husband especially. LOL! My former boss – legal counsel and director of a listed company – loved this characteristic of mine though. We had to be meticulous when drafting legal documents and agreements. Maybe I was just over… you know… like a missing comma, a missing apostrophe, upper/lower case… etc… do you get the picture?
I’m changing. I can set high expectation of myself but I cannot force my expectation on others. Some feel that my expectations are too high, but I love to challenge myself to the limit. Still, I have to consider the people around me, whether they are up to it. Sometimes, I stressed myself out over nothing.
I just have to learn to take it easy and relax, and try not to be stressed when others cannot meet my expectation. This will be one of my new year’s resolutions.
Are you persnickety too? I would love to hear from you. 🙂
