I am a PLANNER, hands down!
For example, I have created and taught a few non-credit courses at our community college in the past. I spent weeks preparing. By the time the day arrived I had attractive folders all prepared and I was all set to lead the class.
Also, when I was in Toastmasters (an international public speaking organization) I wrote and rehearsed my speeches over and over again. If I did not, I would have stumbled and sputtered throughout the presentation.
The reason I am a planner? Because I have learned that PREPARATION IS CONFIDENCE.
If I am not prepared, everyone involved with know it. Even when I have family gatherings: The table is set ahead of time, the menu is written, snacks are in place for the people who arrive hungry, as are drinks.
The only thing I am really spontaneous about is writing. Sometimes I will get a flash thought and jot it down.
On the other hand, my husband is spontaneous. I'll be doing dishes and he'll say, "how soon can you be ready for a road trip?" I so love being with him when he's not working that I just drop everything and hop in the truck and away we go.
So, I guess my life consists of both planning on my part and spontaneity on the part of my husband. Blessings Sparklea :)
