Motivational Power Quote

 

Think Before You Act

"It's better to sleep on things beforehand

than to be about them afterward."

Barbara Gracian

   

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Think before you act  

Act with a purpose for there are many things that we do, that once done can't be recalled, they become permanent. Know the impact of your actions before they are taken.    

Think about your actions before they take place and there will very little regret and the quality of your actions will improve.  

In you actions think in terms of responding with a purpose and not to react in the moment without thought. 

Thinking before taking action gives you peace of mind that you're making the decision in your actions.

I always say I get up and walk around my chair a couple of times before I send an email or act when I am mad about something. IN the end I always change it !

Sometimes I think we all say things before we really think about them...you are right...we can't take them back all the time!

The more hurried, over booked a person is, the less thinking about the consquences..there just simply is no time left to ponder, consider and that is where the misunderstandings, hurt feelings stem from. Don't hate the person, hate the fast paced 200 mile per hour blurred lifestyle.

I always put my clients first in any transaction!

I look at is like crossing a busy street. Where do I want to end up, on the other side or in the hospital?

The older I become, I am able to make solid decisions rather than haphazardly and erratically! I appreciate the inspiration today Lou!

Sometimes there is not enough to think before you speak or act.  I recommend reading Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  If you act based on your principles, then your first reaction is appropriate reaction.  A lot more goes into this, so I recommend the book.

Having a plan and working the plan is the only way.  Thank you for your post.  I try to have my written scripts on my desk when I make calls.
