one of the (many) things i struggle with in life is taking initiative when it comes to – well – anything.
i’m great at doing the things that i’ve been asked to do be it personally or professionally, but when it comes to my 1.) seeing a need and 2.) responding to it, i’m simply not there.
i was talking with my boss the other day about some work-related things, and he asked me to be intentional about scheduling meetings with him to review what i’ve been learning about software i use rather than his coming to me and inquiring.
something like that sounds so simple, but for some reason it does not come easy for me.
how does one combat this inability to be intentional and take initiative? is it just another thing in life that takes practice and an intentional moment-by-moment awareness?
i’d love to hear your thoughts.
