Thoughts from an Introvert

Introvert1

Currently trying to work through:

  1. How much time to spend with people before they become a client. 15 minutes on the phone seems too short, an hour in-person is exhausting.
  2. How to spend time by myself without it being centered around my phone or a bright screen. And not feeling guilty when that’s sometimes what I want to do.
  3. And to add to that: knowing the difference between activities that temporarily relax me and ones that actually fill me up.
  4. Scheduling time or days off when we schedule multiple jam sessions in one week. And remembering that I shouldn’t schedule social activities the night of a jam session. 12+ hours of socialization doesn’t work.
  5. That presenting design work is a form of vulnerability and can leave me feeling alive but also tired.
  6. Compromise with my co-worker/husband and I can’t just be a hermit. Even when it’s so cold.

PS: I wrote an ebook about introversion while also being a professional/girl boss. We also have an Instagram. #introvertsunite
