An individual's personal strengths and weaknesses are life learning experiences and we all as human beings have different levels strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes a person's strengths and weaknesses may seem very difficult to discuss at times. No one ever wants to admit that they have weaknesses because they are feel ashamed or embarrassed to let others to know that their weaknesses exist. It is best for a person to really know himself or herself in order to accurately evaluate the areas that require additional personal development such as determining their strengths and weaknesses. We have to be totally honest to paint a true picture of where we are now and where we want to be.

I am able to conquer projects in both my personal and professional life in such a manner that they can be completed with efficiency. This saves me time and allows me to accomplish more.

In my work environment, I can posses some positive strength as well as some negative weaknesses. I believe I am a team player and I get the job done! Fortunately, procrastination doesn't play a role in my work environment. I have to be able to stay focus on what my responsibilities entails. My role is to remind my co-workers of what needs to be done and keep track of monthly income.
