What is Initiative? It is about doing the right thing without being told. It means doing the right thing to manage your work and your life. When you take initiatives to manage your work, you always go the extra mile and do more than what you are asked to do. You also add value to your work.
You also need to take initiatives to manage your life – your time, your stress and changes in your life and work. No one loves you or cares for you as yourself.
