Motivation

servermonkey: (Me 01-11-2009)
Is not something that I could ever honestly say that I have been. Ever.

As far back as I can remember, I made no real concerted effort at anything really. This is actually very much against a typical only child personality--from what little bits and pieces I've read about birth order factors. Go me, not wanting to live the stereotype. Woo! I mean, I have a strong sense of duty, to be sure and I am very much a stick with the traditions type of personality--so I'm not totally going against my supposed type. Mine is a fine example of a dichotomy in a large number of ways.

Anyway, I've found myself being (perhaps unnecessarily) exceptionally hard on both Abby and Jon. I have to step back, sometimes with prompting, as to why in the world I am that way with them. Perhaps it's a normal parent thing, it certainly isn't me per se. It's not something that I feel came from my mother or step-father. They were many things, but type A personalities was not one of them.

At work, I expect the best from the kids I work with--though I would like to think that I'm not as hard on them as I am with my own.

Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be going with our E Team (Economics Team) and their coach to their first competition. I'm nervous for them and wonder if I've run them through enough drills. We'll see how they do and what we need to work on. I can't wait! If one had told me a year ago that this is what I'd be doing, I'd not have believed them. In fact, hearty laughter may have ensued. My life is a good life.
