My introvert epiphany

CIP096: My Introvert Epiphany

I remember clearly being called ‘shy’ as a child. Sometimes ‘quiet.’ I despised the latter more. At least with ‘shy’ it felt like a virus I had caught. Being called ‘quiet’ suggested I had nothing to say. But I had lots to say, just not out loud. Either way, I knew that they weren’t terms […]

CIP065: Worry, Distraction, Procrastination… OH MY!

I’m going to come out with a possibly controversial statement… Worrying helps our creativity. What what? Ok… think about it like this: most breakthroughs, whether they were in technology or art or anything else for that matter, came about because we were worried.

CIP063: Your Energy Needs

Part of my fascination with the term ‘introvert’ as I define it is how it describes how I understand where we, as introverts, get our energy from.
