The Go-First Principle basically states that you can’t wait for others. That is reactive. Instead, go-first. Give first, raise your hand first, speak up first. Don’t wait for anyone.
When you go-first, a few things tend to happen:
- You stop waiting for others to make your situation better.
- Other people tend to relax and follow after you went first. Going first is sometimes leading by example.
- You become more proactive in solving your own problems.
- You develop leadership skills.
In conclusion, GO-FIRST.
