Being Proactive

vs. Being Reactive

Proactive people make choices based on principles/values. Reactive people make choices based on emotions, feelings, their moods and on impulse. Proactive people know what they can control and what they can’t. To become more proactive take responsibility for your life and develop a can-do attitude.

Begin with the End in Mind

Put First Things First

Think Win-Win
