Manage Thy Self through being a Proactive Bus Driver

December 12, 2023

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Many leadership books share action steps or principles to help your life. Ever notice how many of them start in a similar way. 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Be Proactive, The Energy Bus - You’re the Driver of the bus, Effective Executive - Manage thy self.
My favorite example of this is the Story of Joseph in the book Genesis. We are all dealt different cards in life, and challenges will come our way, whether or not we are responsible for them.
Here are three ways we can learn to be Proactive people:

  • Humans tend to play the victim, fight against it
  • Understand you have the freedom to choose how you will respond
  • Face reality and take action

Quote of the Week:
