Taking initiative seems rather lost nowadays doesn‚Äôt it? Noticing something needs to be done, taking responsibility to do it on your own. That is a nice change to see‚Ä¶ when you see it.
I am sure there are times when taking initiative is bad. Like when you really have no clue what you are doing and just want to look like you do. In that case you will most likely screw up whatever you are trying to do and it will need to be redone.
Most things are great though and taking initiative in them can mark a great improvement in your life. Let‚Äôs say your parents or spouse or roommate is always asking you to do something or they do something regularly that you decide to take some initiative on and do it yourself either for them or for yourself. Well that‚Äôs refreshing isn‚Äôt it?
You may think you just did more work for no reward but you would be wrong. Not only does it give you a sense of accomplishment, but more importantly it will really help your relationship with that other person. it shows thought, care, and love.
