When asked if I am a "people-oriented person" or a "task-oriented person" I am always torn. There are days when I feel like I thrive off of conversations and relationships that I have with those around me. Then there are days when I feel renewed after achieving tasks, checking things off of a list.
I have realized that I am proned to write out lists and post-it notes for just about everything in life. Organizing and cleaning are not only stress relievers for me, but seem to have become essential ingredients to my sanity.
If I'm honest, I find my self-worth increase or decrease often times by how much I have accomplished in a day. When I have an evening to myself, I feel very lazy if it is mostly spent relaxing. Some of this is just the need for routine duties like cleaning up after myself, paying bills, laundry. A strong reminder of the source of my self-worth is not to be found in accomplishment or relationship with others, but it is to be found in my relationship with Christ. I realize this, but how does that play out in my life?
There are extremes to any viewpoint and I am big on the concept of "balance". There must be a balance in life between feeling fulfillment in having meaningful conversations and relationships with people and finding fulfillment in accomplishing tasks. My scales need to be re-evaluated.
