When people see you as an optimist, but you’re secretly your own worst critic.
When you can watch a movie for the first time and predict the plot and ending in minutes.
When you discover that you’re assumptions/guesses about people’s motives are usually correct.
When you people watch in the airport, and notice things that others would never even think of.
When the things you think of, no one in their right mind would think of.
When you want to save the world (without being noticed).
When people consider you a good leader because you always have great ideas, but you hate being moved into the forefront. Unless it’s something you’re extremely passionate about.
When showers take a lot longer than they should because you are too busy using the shower as your thinker’s lab.
When you go from stimulated to gone in less than 5 seconds in a conversation.
When you feel like you always have to explain yourself… and then when you do – you always think that it makes more sense in your own head then when you put it into words.
When you constantly have trouble enjoying the moment because you are always looking ahead at what will be to figure out what you need to do today in order to reach the future outcome.
When everyone says you’re blunt, intense, and mysterious; then ask “what are you?”
When you have a knack for starring at people and trying to figure them out.
When the waiter says “enjoy your meal” and you say “you too”.
When you have hundreds of people who rely on you for their daily counselor.
When you’re always trying to hire people long before your company can really hire people.
When you hide in your office and pretend like your busy to do some hardcore pondering.
So here’s to visionary entrepreneurs. The creator. We’re born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel, and experience. It is developed, nurtured, and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies.
