As a dominant, I have a marked sense of urgency, but I am not as likely to get into the details. As inspiring, I love forming relationships with others and getting to know them, and I can also be spontaneous. Mostly, I am a results-oriented person and am quick to react.

We are creatures of habit for a good reason. Habits and routines make us much more effective. The actions we do become automatic, and we spend less time deciding whether we want to do them. These routines, however, can become constraining, and sometimes the time comes to change them or allow for more flexibility.
My schedule is fuller these days, making me feel like I’m falling behind and won’t get anything done. I’m starting to feel like no matter how hard I try, some things do not change. I wanted to share my feelings if anybody was feeling similarly to see if my experiences might help.
I am grateful for the opportunity I have had as a manager. I have learned and grown so much, even though it was not always easy or painless. I have found no greater satisfaction in my career than seeing others and my company, Celaque, grow.
What you know is a gift: take stock of your accumulated knowledge, nurture it, and share it with others. And if you decide to do something different after that, go ahead, but do not forget what you know.
I had to learn quickly and the hard way, but I did learn. And the more I exposed myself to new projects at work, the more I grew. The same can apply to our companies and with our teams. Even if we have people who have not had practice making decisions, we can teach them and they will also grow.
I’m surprised by how long it took me to realize what I was doing this time because I have been practicing letting go of the past for a long time. But it creeps in, and sometimes we do not notice. The more we are present, the more potent we are and the happier we will be.
Sometimes change comes faster than expected, but I’m learning to embrace it. This transition did not happen because I took a vacation, but the time off was crucial in helping me see the change more quickly and fully than I would have otherwise.
