Being Proactive!

The last few months I really feel like my writing “spunk”, or charisma has been seriously lacking. I don’t know if it’s lack of content, time, or even the motivation to write something spectacular. Sometimes I can’t find the time. Or when I do have time I am not in the “mood”, or it’s too loud, or I can’t think, or, or, or…The list can go on when it comes to excuses. Every once and awhile you just have to get up and do something about it. -

I have been reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People recently and one of the “habits” is being proactive. Being a doer, and not just a talker. Instead of saying “That’s just the way I am.” Say, “I can choose a different approach.” Instead of saying “If only”, say “I will.”

As I was thinking about this simple yet intriguing concept I thought of my fear of flash photography. While I know you can do lots of cool things with it and even have more control over low light situations, I just never wanted to master it. Or so I told myself. I would say, flash always looks bad, natural lighting is much better. Which is true to an extent. If you are a pro with a flash then a lot of times it can look even cooler. But that always comes down to mastery of something right? Well I have decided to get over it, get out there and do something about it. I just bought a SB 900 flash for my Nikon and it should be coming in the mail soon. When it does you will probably be seeing some posts about the experiments I will be trying. We can learn flash photography together!

Until next time, rise off your butt, inhale some fresh air, and stop thinking about doing something and do it already!
