Why is it so easy to react before thinking how to act appropriately?
Sadly, most reactions are based on a lack of adequate details, false information, and misguided perspective. We allow our emotions to eliminate reason and good judgment.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.”
In these moments, our minds possess a greater ability to think clearly and make decisions that affect how we act.
We prevent heated arguments, snap decisions, incorrect accusations, wrong conclusions, and the regret of saying or doing something we cannot retract.
