Being Reactive

Reactive has a bad reputation.

While it is important to have vision and be proactive, that is only one piece of the puzzle. You must effectively and deliberately react to a wide variety of situations on a daily basis to be a strong leader. Part of your strength is born from your ability to consider options and react decisively when facing adversity and difficult decisions.

And although it seems counter-intuitive, sometimes the best reaction is deciding not to act.
