The situation was such that I had to manage against my natural Myers-Briggs "P" preference to keep my options open. Publishing schedules and deadlines required that for success in my job. When I work against who I am naturally, I often exaggerate the quality I'm going for, so I ended up looking like a total "J." Things got done efficiently, but sometimes without the playful options that I usually bring to make the work fun.
Now, I publish for me. I'm thinking a little "J" might be a good thing. I'm out a schedule and a planner and building some confidence in my ability to make things happen again.
Think of the possibilities -- a whole horizon -- of what I'll get done.
It's whole new option for working in my PJs.
