INTJ December 2017 Challenge
Happy first day of December, everyone! I’ve been on winter break for two weeks now, and I am finally beginning to get over my jet lag from cross-continental travel. Even so, jet-lagged or not, the blog must still be written, and the INTJ Challenge post is one of my favorite post topics. So, let’s get started. How did the November challenge go for you? As a reminder, I challenged you to slow down and focus on one task at a time – in other words, use focused intention rather than multitasking. Were you successful? For me, this challenge couldn’t have come at a better time as I tackled a busy schedule of finals and presentations. In order to be successful, I had to schedule everything, practically to the minute, and while the amount of work made it tempting to multitask, I did stick to the challenge and was able to still get things done.
Although the holidays are hectic for most of us, it’s also a good time to focus on feeding your Ni, introverted intuition. Constant socializing and holiday prep can leave introverts emotionally drained. I believe that recharging your Ni can also recharge your energy, or perhaps your tolerance, from too much peopling. My favorite way to feed my intuition is to spend time reading books that I want to read, not dry, boring textbooks about corporate finance. Aargh! So, to the challenge. This December, pick out a book, or two, that you’ve been putting off reading because of time constraints. I try to read 50 books a year, but this year, I am woefully behind at only 30. I usually consume my books in audio format so that I can multi-task. This December, I’ve picked few physical books that I’ve neglected to read (although one is still about finance). So, with that being said, happy reading, and I wish you the best of luck in carving out a moment of time to enjoy reading. Good luck!
