Episode 8: Creativity and Routine

Over the past year, I have been consistent with Para—Playing with him regularly, setting goals, and always showing up. Pretty quickly, though, I felt that our progress together plateaued and boredom set in… For both of us. Boredom then started manifesting itself into unfavorable behavior from him and I began to wonder “What is the answer?

Through self-reflection of my own life, I soon discovered the answer was creativity, variety, and learning!

Since changing my perspective for Para, I have begun challenging him through creative activities, learning new things and always keeping it fun. I’m glad to report that we are back on the upward trend of improvement.

When Para came to me, he would do just about anything to avoid being caught. He was clever in his avoidance and it was clear that he didn’t trust humans (and certainly didn’t want to be close to them). Through trial and error, I found the correct sequence that worked for both of us in approaching him. Soon after, he was approaching me in the pasture.

Will Smith said “No matter how talented you are, your talent will fail you if you’re not skilled. Skill is achieved through practice. Work hard and dedicate yourself to be better every day.” This rings true for many of us and sometimes it’s easy to discount people’s hard work when we only see the end result.
