Well, here we are again staring into our habits, only this time we’re looking at the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. Now that we’ve learned what our habits actually are, this book will help us take it to the next level, starting off with the first habit: Be Proactive. This week, Alisha taught us how we can learn to be more “proactive” rather than “reactive” towards our present circumstances.
What do you think it means to be proactive? The definition of proactive is; controlling a situation by making things happen or by preparing for possible, future problems. A huge part of being proactive is being responsible. By being reactive, we defer responsibilities. Playing the blame game, especially in the work world, is a recipe for disaster. Our circle of influence, people like our family and friends, even our co-workers, can deeply effect our ability to be, and stay, in a proactive mindset. If those around you are only bringing you down and are discouraging you from accomplishing some of your major goals, then maybe re-think having them in your “inner circle.”
In order to be as proactive as we can be we have to owe our responsibilities and take action for our own lives.
When we sit around and expect people to do our job for us, then nothing gets done.
And that is both in your personal and professional life. At VoiceNation, we’re teaching our staff, through Staff Development, to be proactive and live a life of determination and self discipline!
