My Favorite Re Word:


The word react has gotten a bad rap, as it’s always placed in contrast to being “proactive.” The reality is that the only way we can ever make effective decisions is to allow ourselves to react to the current moment. Opportunity exists solely in our ability to react at the top of our intelligence.
