Waiting for other people to do something, or anything, before you do something is about waiting for action to take place so that your reaction can follow.
It’s about following.
But it’s only concerning incidents that follow once the main event has taken place.
The complete situation is like a chemical equation: it’s all in relation to being a catalyst or a reaction.
Depending on the catalyst the reaction can be rapid or slow, and at the end of the reactive process the catalyst remains the same. Given these facts, I think it’s worth considering whether I want to be a catalyst for change or merely have a reaction to change imposed on me. The reactive element of this process is usually altered at the end of it while the catalyst remains the same: able to cause reactions within different environments again and again.
With that choice to make I’d suggest it is better to live an active than a re-active life.
It’s March, a new month, so that can be a catalyst, can’t it? I think the start of each month means a spring into action ... doesn’t it?
