..... identifying a need and acting. Example: answering an unanswered question, like 'What does initiative look like in a person?'
What does it look like? On the face, it looks like resolution with a dash of determination - trepidation overcome, in some cases. It is the alpha moment where action starts and energy rolls in a willed direction. Initiative is immediate, it is the stimulus that makes trolls sing out '1st!' without bothering with semantic content. Sometimes it smiles. It looks the way these words make me feel: boldness, enterprise, focus, opportunity. It is linear and progressive, not static - the race, not the raceway. I think it might be green.
