Back in 2010, I wrote an article called How to Be Proactive at Work: My 5 Step System. Much to my surprise, it immediately became the most popular post on my website and remains in that coveted position to this day. Every week, hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of people search “How to be proactive at work” and land on my article.
Over the years, I’ve often marveled at this. Who knew so many people struggled with the concept of being proactive?
It’s now been 7 years since I wrote that original article and in the meantime, I’ve done a ton of research (and a lot of deep thinking) about how to be proactive at work. In fact, I was so inspired, I actually wrote an entire book about it. You can find it here.
I still stand by everything I said in my first article, but I wanted to offer some of my new insights on the topic here. All of these concepts are explored in much greater detail in my book. So if you’re excited about what you see here, there’s more to learn!
