When it comes to perceiving ideas and starting projects, I can’t be gladder to share and explore new ideas. However, following through on projects steps is a struggle for me, it’s challenging to maintain focus on the project when start to become a routine, my practical skills need improving. Working with a team and be on time as planned is another tussle to meI get stressed easily since I overthink things and I can’t handle the detailed work. Moreover, being in a very constrained workplace with many paperwork and finding myself overwhelmed by the administrative tasks make me miserable. While I enjoy being surrounded by people and social events, I find it hard to balance my social life and my work tasks; also, that’s mean I have to say no to people I care about to keep up the work tasks. To address such challenges in the future I must focus on my strengths that can bring opportunity instead of problems, excel my personal strengths areas will keep me ahead of a lot of things.
