30 Days of Truth, Day 11 : Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
We’re into double digits and over a third complete in the 30 Days of Truth series! Let’s see what’s on the docket today!
Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
As Mrs. AbsinthePassion can attest, I often do not notice attention being paid to me when we’re out and about. When I focus I can pick up on somebody checking me out or flirting with me, but most times I am dense and clueless. As such, I don’t necessarily notice somebody paying me a compliment outside of my close friends and partners.
With that in mind, the one thing I have been hearing for years from friends, coworkers, and partners is how unusually fast I seem to be able to process and absorb information when I choose to learn something new. Whether it’s how to tweak new software, troubleshoot a new OS, learn the geography of a new town, or learn the basics of a new language I can pick up the skill rather quickly. To show my geeky side a moment, in videogame terms I am akin to the Red Mage in Final Fantasy.
This skillset has been incredibly useful over my IT support career. As technology advances I an pick up the tips and tricks to work with the new equipment without compromising in my support of older products. Corporate environments are no longer just Windows PC connecting to a central server; there are Windows, Apple, and Linux desktops and laptops, there are Blackberries and Windows Phones and Android and Apple phones and tablets, and they all need support. I can jump between them all without missing a step in the dance.
In terms of other benefits, Mrs. AP rather likes and benefits from how quickly I learn as well.
Stay SINful, friends.
