Happy World Introvert Day 2018!

  Even before the first World Introvert Day in 2011, introverts have fought to have a voice in a loud, loud world. Seven years later in 2018, introverts are still so often misunderstood. The world, both extroverts and introverts, too often equate the word “introversion” with negative terms and may even make us question our own self-worth, because […]

What Are Your Goals For 2018?

As the year winds down, it’s often a time for reflection and a time to look ahead to the next year.  Are you living the life you want? How did this year go? Did you get closer to reaching your goals? Where and who do you want to be next year at this time?  I […]

A Man of Few Words

In a meeting with someone the other day, I thought I was carrying on my share of the conversation.  There was much back and forth discussion.  As we were finishing up our meeting, the person said to me that I was a man of few words. I was taken back at first as it felt […]

Used To Be An Introvert?

Have you ever heard someone say that they used to be an introvert, but now they are an extrovert? They have learned to be more social and now they are “cured” of introversion. Or maybe the other way around… They used to be more extroverted and now are more introverted since they like to spend […]

Introverted Confidence

Confidence (or self-confidence) comes when you believe that you have great value, much to offer, and are worthwhile in your uniqueness.  Are you a confident introvert?  If not, this is something you can change.  You can gain confidence in your worth and uniqueness and the gifts you have to offer the world.  Sometimes introverts may […]

Understanding Introverted Strengths and Needs

I’ve been writing on introversion for a few years now.  My focus on Quiet and Strong is that by understanding your introversion, and your specific strengths and needs, you can be strong. By sharing my own needs and what makes me strong, my hope is that other introverts who are struggling or feeling less-than can find their […]

Time Management Tips for Introverts

As an introvert, and one with an overwhelming amount of work and interests, I often find myself with a massive to-do list. I always have so many things I need and want to accomplish in both my professional life and in my personal life, and there never is enough time.  I’ve been doing quite a bit […]

Focus on the Important

As this year winds down, I find myself thinking what still has to be done in 2016 and what can wait until 2017. I have so many things to accomplish both at work and at home. I have discovered that no matter how hard I work or how organized I am, it is impossible to get everything […]
