Proactivity means thinking ahead a situation and act in the most favorable way to make a positive change of it, it means to anticipate and be self-initiative. I think this is the key to every country, business, and person's success. By being proactive you contribute to the natural movement of things, and by the natural movement of things I mean the everyday rhythm of life and to the society "machinery". Being proactive means you are always willing to give that extra mile without having to have some kind of pressure behind you or specific instructions telling you what, when and how to do things. Anticipation saves us from many mistakes, and self-initiated behavior is always a plus when it comes to respond efficiently on your own. Whether it is for a country or for a business, people that are proactive are an asset because they contribute with productive ideas, productive ideas leads to productive actions, and productive actions always improves any kind of situation. As an asset to every group, people that are proactive stands out from the crowd in a positive way, and are always synonym of improvement to the society. Proactivity plays an important role in today's society because we are living in a constantly changing environment and dynamic society. People who adapt themselves rapidly and deal with change in the most efficient way are the ones who survive on today's fast paced world. So stop being a passive person, and start being proactive! If you are already a proactive person, cheers to you!
