One of my projects right now is trying to get across to my oldest son that working hard at things in life is important. He has a rather poor work ethic and tends to do the least amount of work possible on all things. He sets goals and never sees them through to completion. I know many people would say that this is something that we have instilled in him but I find that hard to accept. His father and I are the type of people who are consistently working towards and achieving our goals. Somewhere along the lines we have either made it seem to easy to our son or not held him to a high enough standard. I can only hope that we are able to negate this attitude and give him that inner drive to succeed with the gifts he has been given.
