Much of the time we choose to approach our tasks, whether they be leisure-directed, home-directed, or work-directed, from the side, at an angle, or even from behind. In many cases this works quite well. Coming at these myriad tasks or challenges indirectly gives us time to think and to plan before we must wind ourselves up to step or leap into action. At times, though, we are not given the time to stop and think before acting, we must forge ahead and trust our instincts and experience to guide us through an emergency or to guide us along a quickly changing path to a goal or accomplishment. At these times we must rely on the experiences others have had, good and bad, as well as our abilities to quickly recall our own experiences and ability to improvise. A time where quick thinking and quick action is necessary is not the time to stop to listen to advice from others or to stop to evaluate the entire situation and make a measured decision. This may not be how we accustomed to reacting, but is sometimes necessary to avoid worse consequences. We cannot stop to beat ourselves over the head for making a quick decision, we must work with what we have and if headlong action is what is required, so be it. Wouldn’t you rather act quickly when a choice is trust upon you than sit like a bump on a log?
