Pressure, that is. Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt asks:
Do you think you handle pressure well, or do you usually fall apart?
When I am under pressure I handle it well and get through it without falling apart. I’d make a very good swan or duck, gliding calmly along on the surface with my feet paddling quickly to keep up.
I think the reason that I do work well under pressure is that I am organised. You may not realise it from the mess of my desk but I know where everything is and I know when everything is due. If I have time to do what is due tomorrow or next week, I will do it now. At least if it’s done and something urgent comes in I won’t need to choose or decide which one is more important. I also have excellent time management skills and a routine which I stick to wherever possible, it can be changed but it is easier to fit things in if I can slot them in to an established routine.
