“I am sorry. I suck at ______. Thanks for being patient with me.” / SML.20121211.Apologies.ThankYou
“I am sorry.
I suck at ______.
Thanks for being patient with me.”
Being able to identify what I am not good at is difficult, so being diagnosed with ADHD + Bipolar was mostly a blessing as it became far easier for me to identify possible weaknesses using available statistics models.
What I suck at: time management, organization of physical space, people skills. By noting what I am not good at, I can then tackle the problem by delegating work which I cannot complete to others who are excellent at it.
+/ Since I suck at time management, I do not sign myself up on any large projects unless it has an excellent project manager.
+/ Since I suck at physical space organization, I find that it's often best if I date OCD people — ADHD/Bipolar + OCD = match made in heaven.
+/ Since I suck at people skills, I make sure that there is a “people person” co-host present when I wish to organize any event.
Apologies notes and thank you notes run through most of my daily communication. As such I was surprised to see that the majority of business stationary design jobs do not include these as standard deliverables. For my own business, I rarely find the need for business cards so I don't really print them (yet). However the first thing that I will be printing which I find to be most crucial are thank you notes and apologies notes such as these.
This will likely be printed on postcards so I can write + mail as needed.
