The inspiration for my squirrel personality definition was prompted by an event I attended yesterday. It was an informal photo editing party courtesy of my photography club. We were there to collaborate with each other and learn from the more experienced.
We weren’t required to take anything, so all I took was my camera. I had illusions that I would load photo editing software on my laptop, find some photos I wanted some assistance with, and venture to the little town I have fallen in love with, and – well collaborate.
This PROcrastinator, did not load the editing software on the laptop, couldn’t find a flash drive to at least take photos in order to receive feedback, AND couldn’t even find the photos in the many storage places to transfer to a flash drive.
So—I took the only thing I could find. My camera.
Obviously, I left my brain behind, but I did have a pad of paper and a pen to take some notes, which I hope I can apply.
I learned a lot.
I laughed with friends.
I made some new friends.
I learned that I need to work on that ADD crap so that I can keep my attention on a conversation, in order to avoid appearing to be a complete idiot because I lost focus somewhere during the conversation.
The best lesson? The worry over what I can, or can’t accomplish, isn’t important. While I believe I can tweak some of my quirks to make life a bit more easy, going with the flow and enjoying what I’m doing at any moment is what’s important.
