I feel completely out of my sweet spot when I am standing up and speaking in front of adults. Before speaking in front of a group of adults I become extremely nervous and feel very uncomfortable. My heart beats fast, my face turns red, and my hands become clammy. After speaking to the group I am relieve and tired. I always need to take a couple of slow deep breaths to calm me down and bring me back to feeling “normal.”
I really enjoyed listening to Marcus Buckingham’s video. I was able to relate to what he was saying about his son Jack in needing organization. I am the same way and I have always been this way. I have been able to take this and use it for positive in my life and in my work. Over the years I have come to learn that I work well in an organized space and I do not work well in a disorganized space. I take this knowledge of my personality and use it to make my teaching better. I keep my teaching space organized and clean so that I am able to thrive in my sweet spot.
