What is your work style? Do you put off and then suddenly go at it with urgent intent at the last minute? Or do you plan ahead, leave yourself plenty of time and methodically complete the project, perhaps even ahead of time? Possibly, you take the spurt – crash – spurt approach?
Everyone has their own style. Myself, I often let something nag at me for a while and then suddenly get into it. And once I do, I’m almost obsessive about completing the work.
After seeing this pattern for a good many decades, my wife summed it up perfectly.
She looked at me with a slight smile and exclaimed, “You know, you’re either a firecracker or a slug!”
Alas, ’tis true, ’tis true.
