Select a Rocket Booster friend, and share your goals with that person on a regular basis. Each week, spend ten minutes updating him or her on your progress. This process is guaranteed to keep you on track and moving forward and, as an added benefit, will inspire your Rocket Booster friend to establish and meet his or her own goals,too. ~L Nichols
Saw this on my Arsebook feed.
Now, for three years I was effectively at the hectoring and call of an asshole boss; she might have thought of herself as ‘motivating’; I thought of her as something more profane and verbose.
I’m not a person who can be simply pointed in a direction and given a shove. I need to get my head into gear, which is difficult when you know some asshat is going to waddle along, without a care for anything you might be doing at the moment, because they know what you should be doing right now!
Hence my concern. I can be a drifty sort of person, but when I get going, I get going. But I like to be able to stop and take in the situation when things get intense, because I hate missteps.
And I hate suffocating under the overbearing and pressuring presence of other people.
I doubt that I’ll select a ‘Rocket Booster’ any time soon. I’m sure this works for a lot of people. But I’m not sure it works for depressive, insecure, introverted Aspergers types like myself.
