Terry: Again, everyone has weaknesses none of us are perfect.  What would you say are your weaknesses?

Bonnie: I think my biggest weakness is that sometimes I take on too much. I’m willing to do everything.  Then I realize I have a lot to do on my plate because for me it’s hard to say no, I’m learning.

I have learned that some things I have to sometimes say on my schedule for this time period is and then see if I can fit it in and talk about it.  Maybe I can help out in some way, but some things I have to have people assist me because I don’t want to work around the clock.

I’m very good at staying late and working extensive hours, but I’ve learned that sometimes it isn’t always a factor.  I’m also trying to have a life outside of work, which is something new for me, so that I stay fresh and come back the next day with new fresh ideas and the desire to dig in.  Sometimes you have to allocate to other people.

Here’s how I would rate this answer . . .
