9 Things I Wish They Had Taught Me in Law School (Lesson 5)

9 thingsI hope you have found our list helpful so far. This week’s lesson is so simple, yet often missed.

Be proactive. Not reactive.

If you want something in life, reach for it with both hands.  If you expect what you desire to magically fall into your lap, a job, a great client, a brilliant mentor, not only will it probably never happen, but other things will fall into your lap that you don’t want.  While you’re reacting to what you now have that you never wanted you will miss the opportunities you could have reached for that you did want. And that happens to the majority of people. Be in the minority.  The successful minority.

Simply take the first step and set your future in motion. Don’t be the catcher, be the pitcher.
