I think most people would say I am not this type but in truth I tend to be this person. I have a bad habit of waiting for something to happen, for someone to contact me. It’s not that I don’t put out effort to find opportunities, I do. It’s just that I tend to slide back into waiting once I put out that effort. I don’t always push it further. At times I am afraid of bugging people. Other times it’s fear of rejection. It’s also often the situation where I don’t know what next step to take; who to call, where to write, what to submit, etc.
What I do to combat that tendency is simple, it’s just to put it out there all over again. It’s in fits and starts, it comes and goes, I forget then I remember. But no matter how or when it happens, I get back up and put it out there again.
