According to Melissa, we all know people who seem to have it all together. They come across as confident, accomplished, and successful to the outside world, and leave their friends to wonder, “How does she do it all?” Fast-paced, deadline-driven and outcome-focused, American life and work culture has bred Type-A personality behaviors such as ambition, multitasking and perfectionism.
