project WORLDVIEW    META THEME         copyright 2021           Home


I typically aim to do what is right or fair, especially to do my work or duty carefully, thoroughly, and efficiently —minimizing wasted materials, energy, money, time or effort—and taking responsibilities / obligations to others seriously. When entrusted with managing something someone cares about, I tend to be a good steward. I pay attention to details. When I feel stressed because I know something isn’t right, I typically feel I must fix it. So, I’m often putting things in order or am in task-oriented mode. I’m happiest when I’m busy.
