#30daysofTruth: Day 2 – Something I love about myself..

Something I love about myself – This was always going to be one of the harder posts to pull off. I’m naturally hard on myself and am often self deprecating – false modesty – as someone once said.

If there’s one thing I like about myself, its my ability to discretize a problem – to massage a problem till its broken down to its simplest building blocks. It’s useful at work where I often have to come up with solutions to complex problems, and sometimes with people – when I need to understand them. There are downsides, but this is one ability I’ll not trade for anything else. 🙂
