Reactivity of many businessmen, entrepreneurs and top managers happens when they are unable to think and act for the longer-term. Those who are low in proactivity tend to be passive and reactive, and are less inclined to identify and seize opportunities for changing things. They likely adapt to situations rather than change them.
Entrepreneurial awareness of opportunities is an essential strength for entrepreneurs.
To become proactive , you should not just anticipate future problems or opportunities but also act to address these future challenges through achieving, influencing change. This change might be targeted towards improving, altering your environment, such as optimizing any business processes, mastering new skills, or broadening your networks as an entrepreneur. In each case, proactivity means a change from the current trend.
If you are proactive, your intentions and actions manage events, but when you are reactive, events can manage your actions and life.
