The Positive Negatives
Just as many of our virtues cloak our vices, it may be that behavior we routinely shun as negative is beneficial.
What we regard as plodding may be the proper level of focus. "Rashness" may break the paralysis of perfectionism. Schmoozing may provide the right amount of sales contacts.
Our internal list of positive and negative behaviors could well be a Rosetta Stone with which we can sort out the path to achievement.
Translating it could show us where we have created our own barriers and where our attention could be put to better use. We may, in time, be able to create a more accurate distinction between what is harmful and what is beneficial.
