What’s it Mean to be Proactive?   

“You need to be more proactive.”

Has anyone ever said this to you?  Your partner?  Your boss?  Your doctor?

And when they said it, how did you feel?  Motivated?  Annoyed?  Confused?

It seems to me that the word “proactive” is thrown around pretty often.  Maybe a little too often.  So while the need to be more proactive is common advice, what does it really mean? 

I’ll be honest with you.  Back when I had a regular job in a corporation, proactive was a popular buzzword, as it still is.  And I wasn’t necessarily viewed as the most proactive guy.  My lack of proactivity was usually discussed in terms of not planning ahead, having a tendency to take things as they came along, not having a strategy.   

What about being more proactive about your health care?https://justgotdiagnosed.com/resources/whats-it-mean-to-be-proactive-2/
