This may look like a list of complaints but it’s really just an end of the year self-assessment. I will follow this up with a list of five strengths.
One: (in) Consistency
I’m gone and then I’m back and then I’m gone and I feel guilty about it so I come back and try to make up for being gone in a frenzy of activity which leaves me exhausted and gone again.
Two: (not) Prioritizing
I belong to five social networks.
The way things work for me is that my alternates have domains of control. One of them tracks Flickr and another tracks Word Press. Each one is aware of the other account but has little interest in it. Thus far, no one wants to claim Twitter or Face book, at least not with any passion.
Three: (a) Technical
I know that there is a more efficient way to do this social media thing but I can’t remember what it is.
Four: (ball of) Confusion
Not everyone in my system knows everyone that everyone else knows.
This is especially problematic when it comes to collaborations.
I disappeared for nearly a week after the last collaboration because I switched as soon as my part in the effort was complete. The alternate that came out decided to make up for lost time.
Five: The (un) reality is
The reality is that I have an illness that qualifies me for a monthly stipend from a system that is so stacked against the applicant that most people die from poverty and the diseases of poverty before they are approved.
I guess that means that I’m a better mess than I am a blogger.
I bet a lot of people sometimes feel that way.
What are your imperfections.
How do you compensate for them?
