It is something I’ve always been good at, coming up with ideas, and also why I was such a valuable employee at various workplaces. I always felt I should have been paid for all the ideas I came up with to make things more efficient! Unfortunately, that’s not how it worked and I was always jealous of people who were paid (with careers!) for just coming up with new ideas. If I ever had a chance to go back to school, that’s what I would do. I would go back to figure out what I needed in order to have that career. What do you even call those people?
Regardless, I love new ideas. I love fresh starts and white pages. It’s after I get into starting a new project that I begin to realize the difficulty of new things, the effort and time involved in the tasks. It’s similar to the difference between romance and a relationship – the romance of an idea and the relationship of being bound to it. Currently, I don’t have any time for any new relationships in my life.
