I am an introvert.
I know that being around crowds of people and making polite small talk with a smile on my face drains me. Sometimes that makes me feel a little weird or different because it’s not socially acceptable to want to be alone and quiet all the time.
But I know that I’m not alone. Being introverted is not a flaw. It’s a part of my personality. And a part of a lot of other people’s personalities. Introversion comprises enough of our population to inspire the work of Susan Cain and her book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and the resource Charge Up by Claire Deane and Allie Lehman.
Charge Up is a guide written by two entrepreneurs who are able to nurture their introverted tendencies and grow successful businesses. The guide is filled with tips and suggestions for routines that help you optimize your energy levels as an introvert.
For me, this guide reminds me that I’m not alone. It also reminds me to stick to my guns when it comes to saying yes or no to things.
