Happy Tuesday, hope you have a great one!
I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they’re good talkers, but they don’t have good ideas. It’s so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with, and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They’re valuable traits, but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking.
I was browsing through WordPress and came across a post that really impacted me. It was on the topic of how being quiet doesn’t mean you aren’t confident. Growing up as a quiet person, a lot of people thought I was shy or lacking confidence, when that wasn’t the case. If you’d like to check it out, the link is here.
Let me know what you think 🙂
The ultimate source of comfort and peace is within ourselves.
The funny thing about introverts is once they feel comfortable with you, they can be the funniest, most enjoyable people to be around. Its like a secret they feel comfortable sharing with you. Except the secret is their personality.
