EF Challenge — Task Initiation

by Laurie Moore Skillings, SCAC


Task initiation is the ability to begin a task without undue procrastination, in a timely fashion.

 Task Initiation is required for everything we do.

A person with difficulty initiating tasks may present as:

putting things off until the last minute

difficulty setting aside a preferred activity

does not know how to get started

hard time following homework routine


not understanding task, so task is not started

difficulty writing a paper
