Episode 55: Proactivity for the WIN!
Show Notes

In my last solo episode (#53), we looked at the wisdom of having a good plan. I’ve received great feedback on how it’s helped people think about making a plan for the rest of the year, and into 2022! Here’s the thing… you have to ACT on it. Today’s topic is literally about doing JUST that… taking action to either MAKE a plan, or act on the one you map out.  Today, we’re talking about Proactivity.

Intentional Optimism - Your Vehicle for Personal Growth:

  1. Optimistic = The hull, the vehicle that gets you from island A to island B.
  2. Present = The centerboard - keeps you upright, focused, centered.
  3. Energetic = The sail - captures & harnesses the wind, propelling you forward.
  4. Courageous = The rigging - holds everything together in proper tension, resilience. 
  5. Wise = The rudder - keeps you on track, heading in the right direction.
  6. Intentional = Setting everything up to properly capture the wind.

Topics discussed in this episode: 

Putting your plan into motion is what being Proactive is all about. 

  1. PRACTICAL - Making Preparations
  2. ASPIRATIONAL - Promoting Unity
