One of the things that can drive me absolutely nuts at times is the fact that I am a certified control freak. No matter what I am doing in life there are always thoughts going stirring in my brain thinking about a better way of doing it. Even as I see others doing things these thoughts continue. It has made me what I am today, a real problems solver, a person who gets things done and also a pain in the ass. When we are working with others who are just happy with the way things are it can become somewhat of a conflict and can even take away from the whole team mentality.
On a personal scale it has allowed me have the ability to both track my own money and create budgets, control my blood sugar, and organize my life. I know where things are and where they should be placed and when I need to get somewhere I am always the first one there and always on time. But out there in the big, bad world I have learned that it is also important to try to turn my control freak off, or just simply silence it at times. The hard truth of the matter is that you really cannot control everything.
I know that I can control those things in my life that are important to me, but when it comes to things that I cannot control I really don’t like too much. This is one of the reasons why I have never taken to things like gambling or playing games of chance. Even investing money is out of my hands and my retirement plans are in the hands and fate of others who control them. I go out and drive to and from work each day and although I know that I am fully in control of my vehicle I still have to believe that others are doing the right thing. Unfortunately I know this is not the case as I see far too many getting into automobile accidents each day because they simply were either not paying attention or were distracted. What is a control freak to do though? I have created a defense mechanism where I always keep a certain distance from the car in front of me and am always alert to what other drivers are doing.
Yes, I am a total control freak, I don’t know how I got this way, but I am who I am.
