In today's competitive work environment, its important for students to start developing the learning and working still necessary to be successful in their futures. The ability to take initiative is a vital character trait that enables students to move the extra mile whether they are working on an assignment or extra curricular activity.
When students take initiative, they can become active participants in their learning as opposed to passive. This quality is important for growing in both a learning and future working environment. In the school context, for instance, a student who finishes an assignment early should ask the teacher how to move forward with the next concept. Without this aggressive and goal-oriented mindset, students will not fully understand the value of working hard in order to achieve positive outcomes.
