“Learn to outpace concerns for others.”
This is the one line from my Life Objective that I always get the most questions on. What does this mean?
It’s quite simple really. We can see what needs to be done. Whether it’s the trash needs to be taken out, or there’s a load of laundry, or you can tell when someone needs cheering up, just do it. Everyone has a need every day. Instead of waiting to be asked or told to do something, why not just do it? You are going to probably end up doing it anyways, but by being proactive it makes everyone happy. Outpacing means to always be ahead. Make the first step.
At work and at home it’s time to stop reacting and be proactive. How can you outpace someone’s concerns today? Open your eyes and look for that opportunity.
