Primary daily use of E+R=O is to pursue and produce great outcomes, not just to deal with events that show up. Waiting for events is a reactive approach, but some people only think of the equation as it reads from left to right: when an Event shows up, choose a good Response in order to improve the Outcome.
This is basically waiting for an event to trigger E+R=O and allowing life to dictate to you. It’s passive. There’s nothing wrong with using E+R=O like this, that’s how it goes sometimes. Just don’t let it become your norm.
The events you encounter are just your playing field. Be aggressive in your forward focus with E+R=O. Use it to craft your life, create your future, and make things happen.
Embrace the chase. Do the work.
