Think First

Have you ever acted on a whim, instinct or emotion and found out later that you got it wrong?  That very thing has happened to me repeatedly during the last week.  So here are a few situations where you should think first and act second (based on personal experience) -
  1. When booking travel. Just because you can save a few dollars travelling from a close airport but not your home one - is it worth it?  Where will you park your car?  How much extra travel is involved?Spend the extra money and go local.  The benefits outweigh the costs.
  2. When you're angry.  This is the ideal time to say nothing.  Nada.  Zilch.  Zero.  Saying nothing means you won't have anything to retract later.
  3. When a opportunity to good to be true comes your way.  Just as the old adage says - 'if it's too good to be true, it probably is'.

"We need to determine what activities best utilize our time in order to achieve the results we desire in all areas of our life!"
