I recently read an article on the things that successful people have in common!
Of course hard work, long hours and faith in ones self were mentioned. But, there was one attribute that caught my mind. Neatness! “A place for everything and everything in its place!”
I know that if “My” space is cluttered or in disorder I cannot function effectively! I am nervous, distracted and my stomach is as upset as, how I imagine, a death row inmate’s stomach is. I believe that I am a classic “A Type” personality!
I feel guilty if I waste my spare time relaxing, I must be doing something in order to relax, I hate vacations and holidays and anything that slows or interrupts progress towards a goal, I need to be successful in order to derive enjoyment from an activity, I generally move, walk and eat rapidly and I am happiest when I am doing more than one thing at the same time (Multi-tasking) As an example, at the very moment, I am drafting “This” blog I am using the time I have while thinking about what I will express next to shave my face, with my electric razor. And, of course, all the clothing, in my closet is hung and folded in a specific manner!
All of these behaviors could be defined as faults and yet, every one of them is a trait shared by successful people!
When I make a promise to “Myself” as in, I will exercise, write a blog and put up a video everyday, I must accomplish these things if I want to get a good night’s sleep, this evening! OCD? Could be! I do not recommend this sort of life style, as a way of life for anyone else, excepting those, of you, who want to be successful!
