Why “Rebellious One”? I chose this name because whenever anybody tells me to do something — and for some reason, this happens alot — I want to do EXACTLY the opposite. Almost immediately. This ranges from my husband telling me to get more wood for the fire to my Board of Directors telling me I need to grow our organization. In both instances the moments proceeding these comments I was actually thinking the same thing and planning it out. But the very moment somebody SAYS to do it, I immediately want to say no!
What the hell is that?
I don’t know what it is, but I imagine it is the same trait that makes me successful. If I stayed at my previous job, that was safe, I would be bored out of my mind by the slow pace of bureaucracy and still spinning my wheels due to the same frustrations.
Let’s hope at some point in my life I gather the maturity to finally shelve that immediate need to tell somebody to take a flying leap.
