After watching Marcus Buckingham's video, I've realized that there are certain situations that I feel that I'm in my 'sweet spot'. I realize that I feel more comfortable and get my best work done when I feel in control of the task at hand and I know what needs to be done. Situations like these are when I'm working alone or when I'm in charge of what needs to be done when I'm working with others. I'm also very competitive and I thrive when I feel I am measured up to someone else or there is a mutual competition. I feel this is the case because I like to know that no one out worked me or outperformed me because I take pride in what I do. Areas that I feel I am out of my strengths are when I'm just told what to do or when I feel I am working with groups and I feel we are underprepared because I heavily believe in preparation.
