Proactive? You have an addiction problem.
Jumping in. Getting it done. Saving the day. Great traits.
When you’re great with ‘urgency’, you fall out of practice with ‘important’. Perhaps to the point where you may even feel guilty for doing ‘important’ work.
You’re addicted to urgency. There should be no ‘urgent’.
Once you’re hooked on urgency, you’ll tolerate it, instead of contributing to an environment that never sets on fire.
If you’re a proactive member of your team (and I hope you are), it may be time for an urgency detox.
