I have a tendency to be very rigid and complacent. Once I find something that works, I stick with it and don’t explore other options. This works amazing for my personal life but it’s kind of dumb in other areas. For instance, if I travel and find a restaurant I like, I’ll go there for every meal and not bother to look at other options.
So at work I found my exact opposite, a woman who is really into shaking things up, being constantly on the move, traveling, exploring new opportunities. We are now co-chairing a project, and it’s really intense. I hope she shakes me out of my torpor a bit.
