Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Introspection is not one of my strengths despite a penchant for
reviewing past interactions gone askew. Like most others I find it
difficult to provide a "Cliffs Notes" personal profile. I would
suggest that reading my matching questions as a viable avenue for
assessing my values*.
During the course of my career I discovered that success in any
endeavor are the result of both aptitude and attitude. An abundance
or either will most often provide positive results. However, when
there is a synergy of both, results are often exceptional. Based
upon performance evaluations, I have been blessed with an aptitude
for those challenges I chose to accept. My achievements have been
the result of pairing an above average aptitude with a singular,
focused attitude.......to be fair that means that I'm a "one trick
Multitasking is something I avoid as I hate to re-plow freshly
I arrived at my present station after a failed marriage of 35 years
and a 38-year career in banking (I retired before the stench of
Wall Street became overpowering, but the cesspool existed even
then). "There's been a load of compromising of the road to my
horizon"..............with apologies to Glenn Campbell.
Although I'm left-brain dominant, I envy creative people as much
for the manner in which they process thought(s) as their artistic
talent. I'm moderate in most of my philosophies and reject the
lunatic fringe both right and left (everyone has the right to their
opinion so long as they don't insist on imposing it upon others). I
consider myself "spiritual" in matters of theology.
*Warning........I found many of the matching questions either so
bizarre or poorly worded that my inner-child took over and I
provided what my targeted audience (all three of you) might
consider a humorous response. I'm certain that others will conclude
that I'm just another smart ass. In any event I'd be more than
happy to clarify as desired.
