This is the sort of thing that usually dooms anything I want to start. I, like so many, have so many ideas, some of which are good, but things never get beyond the planning stage because I am inherently lazy. Even after a day I think to myself, eh, why do I need to do this. I need to do this for the exact reason that I am thinking that I do not want to. I do not want to continue to let life happen to me. I feel like that in a way, I am still letting things happen to me. I am starting a business partnership and while I am learning, it only makes sense that I will depend on my partner for advice and to catch the things that I miss, this is normal, or so I think it is. I have to continue to work every day to be independent. I have to be proactive and not wait for things to happen because my partner is making them happen. I have to get out there and I have to learn. I have to make things happen myself. I love where I am right now. I am trying to get over the laziness that is so ingrained from years of being comfortable in a crappy situation. I want to be more proactive. Believe it or not, just writing this is part of that. A good line in a really bad movie said, “A writer writes. Always.” I have always aspired to be a writer. I still do. I have been doing more and more every day. I feel like I am getting there. One day, along with whatever business I have, one thing I want to be able to add to my resume is Professional Writer. In order to do that, I have to master the first of the 7 habits. Be proactive. It has been a struggle, but I feel like I doing better each day.
