Nobody has ever told me I’m type A in my life until recently when a commenter wrote in my perpetual failure post,
“I’m not sure everyone would agree with some of your ‘failures’ Sam. I mean, growing a site only 50% a year after 120% growth in previous years is not really considered failure in the corporate world (growth has to slow eventually). It sounds more like type A overachieving not quite reaching the outrageous goals you set for yourself.
But you’re right, any goal not achieved feels like failure regardless of how successful you are compared to others.”
I see a 70% slowdown as a failure because my business isn’t that big in the first place. At this pace, I’ll be lucky to see any positive growth over the next 12 months. But perhaps our personalities aren’t so black and white. I decided to create a sophisticated quiz to get to the bottom of things.
