Summer Success Series Pt. 3: Be Proactive instead of Reactive

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:

  • Proactive = Preparing. Reactive = Repairing. Which way would you rather spend your time this school year?
  • You already know the majority of the challenges you’re going to face this school year (hint: they are the same challenges you face EVERY school year). So why not focus on preventing most of them and preparing for the rest this summer?
  • Instead of working against who you are and trying to fit yourself into the mold other people have set, why not accept who you are and find ways to be successful showing up as yourself?
  • Don’t wait until something is an emergency to finally deal with it. Be proactive and prevent small challenges from becoming big crises later on.
  • What do you need to do now to set you and your teachers up for success in the fall?
You've probably heard the advice before to be proactive rather than reactive. It's really a no brainer. It's much easier to prepare than to repair. And yet, it's easier said than done. "

Emergencies," crop up (that could be prevented), people hijack your time (and keep you from the work you want to focus on), and then there's your own personal challenges to stay organized and focused (sometimes we're our own worst enemies smh).

So in on today's episode, I'm going to walk you through the hidden reasons why being proactive is so hard, and give you some practical strategies you can use to be proactive and set yourself up for success this school year #LikeABuilder. 

Check out these highlights:
  • Ways to anticipate interruptions ahead of time so that you can prevent them
  • How to stop putting out fires and instead prevent them
  • Why you should stop trying to fit into other people’s molds.
  • How to get ahead of a crisis so that other people’s emergencies don’t derail your progress.
