Done. Done and done. Now doesn’t that feel good?
It was only when I first worked in Tanzania that I realised how task oriented I am. We are. It’s cultural. What surfaced as a frustration at how others worked, resulted in a reflective realisation that to me the priority was doing and completing the task, and not the people I was doing it with. In Tanzania, I saw a respect and interest amongst people there that was really quite beautiful. I see now – the problem is at my end.
