Levels of Initiative

What are the things that you do for work? And for yourself? How proactive are you?

A lot of people think a job is about doing what you’re told. And… it certainly seems like there are a lot of jobs like that. Isn’t that what school is all about, training you to do as you’re told?

But in reality, I think the best employees aren’t the ones who simply do as they’re told, but who take initiative to suggest things and get them done.

It’s weird if a CEO has the time to micromanage every single one of her employees.

It’s a lot better if she can give them areas of responsibility and trust them to get things done.
