Somethings  should be easy to recognize because they are so apparent (at least in hindsight).

I have often wondered why I so easily move from one task to another, one location to another, on idea to another while people I love and admire seem stuck. I read the word inertia in a paragraph and while that isn’t likely the difference, I was sent looking for the opposite of inertia.  Words like ambition, enterprise, go, hustle, initiative; assiduity,assiduousness, diligence, perseverance; animation, briskness, energy,exuberance, jazziness, liveliness, lustiness, pep, peppiness, robustness,sprightliness, vibrancy, vigor, vim, vitality, vivacity show up in a Merriam Webster search for antonym of inertia. Fanciful and flattering descriptions and adjectives may be the reason this approach resonated with me. Jazziness: marked by unrestraint, animation, or flashiness may be the most apt for what I was looking for. I anticipate the next step, await the next idea, and appreciate continuous momentum. My  impatient imperfectionism may be the cause or result of this approach – not sure.

I definitely feel anxiety if we have been visiting at a friends too long (my time frame) and ready myself to leave. I actively seek new stimulus when reading, conversing, discussing and use provocation and encouragement to ensure that change is afoot. I can have a tendency (that I am tempering) to look for and seek the next shiny thing.

I am sure that there are more tendencies around shifting from one activity, idea, habit, practice, conversation but I wonder where you are at ease. Do you feel comfortable moving to the next thing or are you at ease settling in for a longer haul?
