I have been very busy at work the past two weeks. Yesterday, I had to set the timer on my phone so that I wouldn't take more than 4 minutes to eat lunch. I have a lot of deadlines this week so needless to say, I have been slightly stressed, nothing too bad, but I can feel the time crunch and that is when I do my best work.
Anyways, after getting a devastating email on something where the plans fell through and I would have to find a backup at the last minute, I was venting to my co-worker just a little bit. She told me that I need to take 5 minutes to just slow down, calm down, and get my thoughts together. I told her that I would love to, but I just really don't have time because I needed to start on a project that was handed to me late ( I was suppose to receive it on Monday, but I just got it at noon today). It was a bit of an artsy project and after working on it for about 30 minutes, I told my co-worker that it was really calming me down and I felt more relaxed by doing this project. She told me that she could see that because I am very methodical person.
She is not the first person who has commented on me being methodical and very organized. I had a huge project yesterday and I was talking to my boss about one of the organizers for the event. My boss made the comment that she never thought she would see the day where someone could one up me on organization.
The reason that I ask is because the other organizer was a bit hard to work with at first. She seemed to have a micro-manger style. My boss even made comments about how demanding and forcefully strong she was. I love being organized but I definitely don't want to people to see me as being some organized freak who when things don't go her way, freaks out.
