Number 14 on Thirty Things wants you to describe 5 strengths you have.
See my weaknesses here.
Here are my strengths
1. I keep cool and calm under pressure
It’s a great way to stay sane. I just focus on the task(s) at hand and power through.
2. I try to see the silver lining in most situations
Why dwell on the negatives when you can look for a positive outcome? Like I said in my post about my weaknesses, I tend to over-think. But sometimes over-thinking can lead to seeing the silver lining. See? I even find silver linings for my weaknesses.
3. I try to be accommodating
I’ll help where and if I am able. This can sometimes be a weakness so I have had to learned to be firm and not be a “yes woman”.
4. I’m organised and punctual
How do people get things done in chaotic surroundings? Things are accomplished better and faster if they’re done in an orderly manner. I see punctuality as a sign of respect. If something stands in the way of my making it to some place on time, I’ll be sure to call ahead and let the other person know. Don’t let people call you to find out where you are.
5. I try to not be wasteful
It’s a great way to be creative too. Sometimes you can turn leftover food into something resembling a gourmet meal. And if you see you’re not using something, give it to someone who will actually use it. Waste not, want not.
