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 […]

A Little Patch of Blue

I was feeling overwhelmed on a particularly dark and cloudy day.  Even though it was late in the morning, it almost appeared to be dark outside.  It was very depressing as I was feeling the same way on the inside.  There was so much going on in my life and these dark clouds just added […]

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 […]

Strengths Don’t Change

I was in a meeting this week that started with “introductions.”  Everyone was supposed to give an interesting fact about themselves.  For some reason I always dread this.  Maybe I don’t like to pinpoint just one thing that defines me, and I certainly don’t like to talk about myself.  So to keep things moving, I said […]

Time Management for Introverts

I found myself once again doing some work on my day off.  I got quite a bit done with some peace and quiet, but was feeling overwhelmed looking at the many tasks and projects I still had remaining.  I continually get better and better at organizing my time.  I am forever tweaking my system.  I have found […]

Don’t Feel Guilty About Free Time

I spent this past week on vacation.  The first part was over the holiday weekend, hanging out with our extended family in the mountains.  It was fun to catch up with family and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  Although I enjoy traveling and seeing everyone, it’s really not relaxing to me.  I’m at a point in my […]

Giving Great Customer Service for Introverts and Extroverts

I have a favorite convenience store that I think provides excellent service. It’s nice and clean with a wide selection of products, but what I really love is that I can get in and out quickly.  I actually will drive past a closer store that I don’t have such a high opinion of to go to […]
