Theory versus the execution, the latter almost always presents the stumbling block. The start is what stops most people. The work-resistance was so overbearing for Hitler to become an artist it was easier for him to turn into an absolute maniac.
But work not need be a psychotic obsession. We must take it in stride, as always. Nor is work a proxy for procrastinating on life's most important matters.
Building up the readiness to act is a conscious habit. It doesn't happen overnight, but rather through an accumulation of small efforts that strengthens the initiative engine. It's a dripping process.
The alternative to a proactive and habitual work process is a reactionary pattern that may generate a paycheck but never leads to anything worthwhile. Choose something and act on it, for that is how we change the way things are.
