What do you do?

A colleague asked me a question yesterday, “what takes up most of your time each day at work?” Simple enough to answer you might think, apparently not, it took me a minute or two to think of anything other than answering emails and talking to people.

Eventually descriptors began to populate my thoughts: monitoring, analysing, reporting, organising, leading, creating, thinking, managing, negotiating.

I wonder if this reticence is due to being a quiet achiever who prefers to see others in the limelight or an incapacity to think and draw a conclusion quickly? I do seem to spend a lot of time cogitating.

According to my Realise2 Development report working on one of my unrealised strengths, “planful” – taking a deliberate and systematic approach to what I do may help me to come to a decision quicker.
