First of all, how impressed are you that I am posting today's in the morning? Okay, now that I am done patting my back, let's get to this post.
I have never thought of myself as a control freak. I am pretty laid back when it comes to many things. I am good at delegating assignments to those who I know will do a better job. However, I have found that I don't deal well with things that are out of my control. Some examples:
