    If you’re not a DOER, a THINKER or a CREATOR and at you realize you are not a HELPER – you’re starting to run out of options fuzzbutt. So, if you’re one of those cats that can’t make any decision at some point you have to chose something. Why you ask? Well have you read the papers recently? Reality check.

    Are you a Helper?

    When you encounter a messy dinner plate you tend to:

    • Bury it to hide the smell
    • Clean it thoroughly to prepare it for the dishwasher
    • Knock it onto the floor and play with the broken pieces
