What About Work?
I know I am a little bit strange, among other things, I like work. Work has not always been kind to me, but I feel kind of adrift without it. Like many of us, my work, is a part of my identity as a person. So let's explore our feelings about work shall we?
1: At work are you a lone-wolf or a team player?
2: Do you view "feedback" as useful guidance or needless meddling?
3: In a 15 second elevator conversation, how to do describe the work you do (or are retired from)?
4: Do you take scheduled breaks at work, or do you work through the day pausing only when you need to?
5: If you were 21 again, and Bill Gates offered to pay you to go to school for a new career, what would you do?
1: I am a lone wolf at work, I prefer to be left alone to get the job done. I am not good at delegating.
2: Most feedback is useless meddling, tell me up front how you want it done and trust me to get it done.
3: I am attorney who does research and program development on issues in law and aging.
4: I work through the day, I usually eat lunch at my desk while working, breaks are as needed and as short as needed.
5: If I had known then, what I know now, I would have gone to Medical School.
