Most of our time is spent reacting to certain situations. Reacting to things happening at work. Reacting to issues at home. Reacting to the news.

The people succeeding who have rewarding careers and creating an impact are the ones who are spending some of their time planning and implementing rather than simply reacting.

Find some time to think about your future. Simply saying, “You don’t have any spare time,” is an excuse to keep reacting to everything that happens to you.
