Why ‘In Summary…’?
I’m an organizer, a planner, a whittle-through-the-muck-to-find-the-bottom-line kind of person. In essence, I’m a summarizer. Most of my conversations end with, “OK, in summary…” with the main outcomes highlighted and the action points delegated. For example, a recent 60-minute conversation with my sister ended with, “In summary…we think the reversal of the DOMA was a very good thing, only one pasta salad is needed at the party on Saturday, you’re going to call Mom’s hairdresser, and I’ll email everyone to let them know my arrival time next Friday. Love you. Bye!”
Someday I’ll write my memoirs with that title, but for now I just write blogs that summarize my thoughts and my other online ramblings. Enjoy!
