I don't think this is me, but if so, my apologies. 

Don't be a reactionary

Someone on LinkedIn posted a meme that said
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
 I think that statement is nice on the surface, but if you start to think, it's not good enough.

Don't live your life in a reactionary mode hostage to outside forces.

Give yourself time to dream, to think, to plan, to strategize and to execute based on what you believe, what you know, what you've learned.

Don't wait for an external catalyst - be your own motivation.

Yes, I must fully recognize two ironic caveats:
  • This post is a reaction to something. 
  • Now I've told you what to do.  Sorry.
