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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Coupon for Your Favorite Introvert

This year for Christmas, my daughter made a coupon book for her mom. It was the sweetest thing! There were coupons for things like emptying the dishwasher, bringing a snack, bringing a drink of water, and cleaning up.  And there was a “leave me alone” coupon. If you know my introverted wife and my extroverted […]

Planning Your Recharge

I am not an introvert because I need to recharge.  I need to recharge BECAUSE I’m an introvert. I believe that being a deep thinker is what is at the heart of my introversion.  I turn inward to thought more often than not. This is how I naturally process – internally rather than externally. So […]

Do Not Disturb

I have been trying for some time to get my workload under control.  I have tweaked my system for organization over and over and have greatly improved my ability to “get things done.”  However, it’s still not enough.  Too often I hear, “Did you get my email?” or “Is that project finished yet?”  I have […]

Balance of Quiet

I spent another Saturday in the office.  The office was closed, so I was all alone and it was nice and quiet.  I have had a project to put together that was very important, but in my day-to-day work, there always seemed to be more pressing matters.  I have been in on many Saturdays (against […]

Relax… It’s Just Small Talk

I spent the past week celebrating the holiday with extended family in the mountains.  With some family members, I had a lot to talk about and catch up on. However, with others, it was a bit difficult to come up with conversation topics.  As an introvert, I generally prefer deeper conversations to small talk, but […]

Making Time To Plan

This has been an extremely busy week and then the weekend came with various family activities and obligations – my parents came to visit, I had a campout with my son, I had a presentation to prepare for, and then spent time with family on Mother’s Day.  Overall,  I really have not had any good […]

Solitude Is Not Selfish

I have discovered that as an introvert, I need some alone time.  It can be hard to find this time with a busy family and work life.  So one of my goals this year is to make some time to “get clear.” I woke up early this morning to enjoy some solitude and not long […]
