While the word proactivity is now fairly common in management literature, it is a word you won't find in most dictionaries.
It means more than merely taking initiative.
It means that as human beings, we are responsible for our own lives.
Our behaviour is a function of our decisions, not our conditions.
We can subordinate feelings to values.
We have the initiative and the responsibility to make things happen.
