My weaknesses include being compulsive and have a lot of expectations from myself. This makes me take on a number of tasks that creates issues for me later. Even though I have clarity of thought and newer ideas, sometimes my introvert natures takes over. I have a fear of public speaking and this prevents me from presenting my ideas. Being very passionate about work has its limitations. I get to be overly attached with my ideas and this sometimes causes me to not complete the task at hand.

It would be easier to innovate and implement my ideas if I start to work in a startup company. There is the opportunity to define and try out my creative ideas in the real time environment.

For this purpose there should be more development of technical skills to meet the requirements. My inherent weakness lies in communication to the people. I would focus on more public speaking. Undertaking classes on public speaking and actually start the process of speaking to others.
