Take the initiative and set the direction

Wai Siew

In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins. Ulysses S. Grant

Take the initiative and make people, events and situations respond to your actions. When you wait, you respond to the actions of others and you are dancing to their beat.
