004 | Proactive vs Reactive Living: You Choose

“The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person.”

Stephen R. Covey

HERO PODCAST 004 Proactive vs Reactive

Proactive Vs Reactive

I first stumbled across the concept of ‘being proactive’ when reading the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, which is one of my top 10 favourite books. Probably top 5.

I wrote an article about this concept not longer after reading that book, and how it applies to health and lifestyle design.

This episode is essentially an audio version of that post, with a few bits of added commentary from me.


What we cover in this episode: 

    • What reactive behavior looks like, why it may be your default pattern, and how it can impact your life experience.
    • What proactive thinking looks like, and how it can be applied to health, business, relationships and more.
    • The top tools and tricks you can introduce to start being more proactive.
