“My Name is Isaac and I’m a Planner”

In the past month I’ve become painfully aware of my tendency to be a planner.

Naturally, I gravitate toward planning. When I think of the week ahead I start planning out what I’m going to do every night. When I look at the future I start planning out my life. Let’s just say spontaneity isn’t my middle name.

There is a cycle of love and hate towards this side of myself. I absolutely love that I’m organized and scheduled and efficient because I know what I’m doing. I absolutely hate that I’m terrible at being spontaneous, and I’m not more laid back and go with the flow.

Recently I’ve decided to embrace who I am. I admit I’m a planner. I like this about me and it’s one of my greatest strengths.

Admittedly, this is a quality that can drive people around me crazy! I’m learning that I don’t have to force my plan on everyone else. That’s just as annoying to them as their lack of planning is to me.

I’ve got a long way to go with this. I’m not sure how you become an organized and relaxed person. I’m not sure this is completely possible. I don’t want to abandon my personality, or try and force others’ around me to conform to my style of life. It’s a balance…

I don’t know how much I will change or even want to change but I know the first step is admitting who I am. I take responsibility for it.

“Like me for all of me.”
