"I'd say that three of my weaknesses are also three of my strengths. I take accountability for my own actions, but sometime to a fault. I can be hard on myself when slip up, and that used to make me trip myself up more. But I am continually trying to grow more emotionally intelligent day by day. This sometimes keeps me up at night, resulting in insomnia, when I'm not able to turn off my mind. In the past this lead to interruptions in my time management. But I've gotten better at being proactive with this. In fact, my manager says I am a role model in this area, but I still feel like I have room to grow. Lastly, would be my attention to detail. I am too strong in this regard and sometime have trouble letting go and saying good enough is good enough. There were times when I tried so hard to over achieve that I ended up turning in my work late. That doesn't happen anymore, but it's still something I struggle with."
