- Think about what is likely to happen in your future. By thinking about potential issues that could arise and being aware of possible future changes, you’ll be able to plan and act accordingly. [For example, if you know that you’ll be going on vacation soon, start putting aside money now for meals or fun activities to do while on vacation.
- Putting off less urgent tasks will get anyone in trouble because they will come back to haunt you when you are supposed to assigned to a higher powered task that will lead you not to be able to get the small tasks done. If you finish the small tasks that are easy as they are given without procrastinating then it will be easier to accomplish the big tasks when they come your way.
- Prioritize the things that are most important. It’s too easy to run from task to task without ever finishing any of them. Remain on a focus stream of finishing one thing at a time and then move on to the next most important task that is on your list.
- After you have finished your tasks that are supposed to be finished, evaluate how you executed them. Did you handle them with all of your ability? Did you half ass them? You should fulfill each task with your best ability so that way it is done and you don’t have to worry about it becoming a worse factor in the end.
- This topic relates to my idea of Self improvement because it is mandatory that you need to get your tasks done to be successful. Not only do you have to do your tasks, but you need to get them done in a good fashion to where you are putting your best effort into it. That’s the best way someone is going to improve their lifestyle until it becomes a habit.
Being proactive comes with many steps and directions to practice to actually execute. It’s not as simple as it seems to just be proactive.
First, you should be prepared for anything to happen in advance. Being proactive is being ready for what’s going to happen tomorrow if something bad happens. Being proactive can minimize damage in the future by being ready for something you are not expecting. Acting proactively means that you are forward-looking. You start looking at future benefits and change yourself accordingly.
Being proactive causes self improvement and awareness. When you become proactive, you take charge of yourself. You get to know who you really are; your values, beliefs and the purpose you wish to pursue. Being proactive also gives a sense of direction. Once you have raised your self-awareness, you are clearer on the things you wish to achieve from life. Decision-making becomes a lot easier. You start to realize that some of the tasks that were eating up most of your time earlier actually do not move you towards your goals and objectives and therefore not worthy of your time. Lastly, it gives you a peace of mind. If you plan for things in advance then you don’t have to worry about for what is to come in the future, giving you a peace of mind.
