Week 17: Taking Initiative

This week I have chosen to blog about someone else.

The trait of the week has been taking initiative and my 15 year old son has given me plenty to notice.

He decided he wanted to get a job.  With no input or help, he created a resume for himself and went out applying.  Although there were a few setbacks, he persevered and ended up with a job at a local grocery store that works well with his schedule and seems to be a good work environment.

I really appreciated watching him take initiative – he decided his goal and then took the initiative to make it happen.  I learned a lot from him this week.

All the best,
