I just cannot understand

For the life of me I cannot wrap my head around how I’ve been telling my boyfriend to take care of a list of important things he NEEDS to do. Like getting his license reinstated and switched over to the state we live in. Getting health insurance looking for a career and leaving his job in the food industry. He’s listened, agreed and then continued with life how it is currently putting everything off. He has one conversation with his mom at our sons first birthday. He tells her how he’s thinking of getting a different job she offers to get him one with her company. The next day he’s making appointments and phone calls. Like was he just deaf the past year orrrrr....??
