This concept doesn't work for me.
Today it's 9:30 at night. I woke up at 6:30 and got ready for work, then sat down and worked for an hour at home. I went to my day job and worked there all day, came home, worked some more on my personal passion projects, went out for a coffee and discussed and planned the future of Twin Falls, then came home and did a telephone consult with a client about her web services to dial in the content needed.
All of a sudden the day is over.
There are some people who thrive in these fast-paced environments and I'm one of them - always looking for the next challenge, the next goal, the next opportunity to shine and to work hard. Even in an environment strictly in-house work, I have always been the type to take on new challenges, learn new skills, discover more avenues of growth and take these all upon myself - the Atlas of the workplace, if you will.
When potential employers and interviewers ask the question, "What is your greatest strength?" my answer is, "Ambition."
When asked what my greatest flaw is, my answer is similarly ambition. When I'm in it, I'm in it 100%, and I'm in it to win it. I'm able to be in multiple avenues, multiple projects, and that's the way I work best.
There are employees out there who are looking to just collect a paycheck ...
I'm sure as hell not one of them.
