I like efficiency. I like getting there. I like getting to the point. Once I timed myself on how long it took me to get to the bathroom, do my business, and get back. I might be a bit compulsive. This is why writing blogs fits me and not writing a novel. This might even be why I love short films. I look at my sense of efficiency as a good thing. But here’s where it gets me into trouble. I’ve noticed not everyone else has the same mind-set as me. Not everyone thinks when you’re talking on the phone you should get to the reason why you’re calling at the beginning of the conversation. So I’ve learned to relax. Chat about how that person is, what’s going on, and such. And you know what? I’ve noticed now I have better relationships than I did before! Wow, what a revelation! I’m glad I take the time to really get to know the person. This has also helped me with my lack of patience. But I still try to not stay in the bathroom to long… may be that’s why I was never one of those girls who go to the bathroom with a whole clan of chicks. That’s just not efficient.
