#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday- Be PROACTIVE


#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

Another Monday presents itself before us and the sons of men are surely returning to work in most places to work hard to earn a living as the Good Lord will surely bless the work of their hands. (Deuteronomy 28:12)

BGIM- Be Proactive

I remember so well the motivational talks my RME teacher gave us in JHS 3. Our teacher, Mr. Salem reading the book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” always shared tips from it to as we prepared for our BECE (Basic Education Certificate Exams).

The only 3 he could share with us were:
-First things first
-Begin with the end in mind
-Be proactive

Proactive in the sense that you control what should happen or how you should deal with a situation rather than how you would respond to the situation.

Proactive will thus always be 3 steps ahead of reactive: how you will respond or react to the situation.

It involves taking measures far ahead of time to ensure you are not taken unaware by an eventuality. In a raining season where it can rain anytime with or without clouds gathering, organisers of an outdoor event especially the sound men (PROACTIVE ONES) will have the protective covering for all their speakers partly fitted on them before the event starts.

Not that it should rain but that should it rain they are well prepared. They won’t wait to see the clouds gathering before they run to and fro looking for protection for their equipment. And that’s we call Proactiveness over Reactiveness.

Are you proactive or you are reactive?
As a student, do you wait to one week to exams before you take your books serious?
As a worker, will you wait for your boss to start collecting your End-of-Year Department Report before you start working on it?

Proactiveness is the KEY.
