I keep a little note on my desk at work to remind me of the one thing I need to be above all else:
Proactive – not reactive.
This post was in my feed reader today, and I appreciate the message. Sometimes, we are so busy running around fixing the consequences of problems that we don’t ever get to the solving part of problems. It is stunningly easy to get caught in that mode.
It’s a daily effort, to stop and think – what am I reacting to, that I should be taking the time to solve and keep from happening again?
