Reactive, proactive

There are really only two approaches to business or to life in general:

Being reactive is a survival approach, you're dealing with what comes at you, you're living to face another day, you rationalize your shortcomings, you keep your head down and say as little as possible.

Being proactive is a success approach, you're focused on progress, on making things better, getting to the bottom of issues, you realize that you will make mistakes but you feel your body of work more than overcomes that.

At some point, the reactive person will face the fact their approach is, indeed, not a survival response at all, because it will be their demise.

You're either reacting or you're taking initiative
