Learning To Love Proactive Planning Again

Being more proactive verses reactive in my work, and life, is a skill I'm learning to love again. A big part of proactive planning involves setting effective yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals.

Two years ago, I used to religiously follow a plan I mapped out for the quarter and broke all the way down into days. While I was proactively planning, the projects weren't necessarily the most strategic. The work was thus more about efficiency than effectiveness. Since then, I've drifted away from yearly, quarterly, monthly, and weekly planning and am more reactive in my daily work flow. Reactive has gotten us to a $1 million company, proactive will get us to a $10 million company.

My goal this time around is to not only proactively plan, but also strategically plan.
