I recently took the Gallup StrengthsFinder test and confirmed that one of my top strengths is "Achiever". While labeled as a "strength", this can also sometimes be a curse, as it makes it hard to relax. There is always this inner pull to get things done. You know that saying you want something done give it to a busy person? That's totally me. But, I recognize that this "strength" overall can be detrimental to my health, which requires a slow down. Reminder for the other achievers out there.

Strengths are the unique combination of talents,knowledge, and skills that every person possesses.  People use these innate traits and abilities in their daily lives to complete their work, to relate with others, and to achieve their goals. But most people don’t know what their strengths are or have the opportunity to use them to their advantage.  To discover YOUR strengths Gallup created the science of StrengthsFinder.
