Too often, many of our problems arise from acting before thinking. We confuse activity with productivity. We think, “I’m so busy, I must be accomplishing something!” In reality, we may just be spinning our wheels. Like sitting in a rocking chair, you can expend a lot of energy and create a lot of motion, but you still aren’t going anywhere.
Progress and productivity always require thought!
A wise man is cautious and avoids danger.
A fool plunges ahead with great confidence.
A wise man thinks ahead; a fool doesn’t and even brags about it!
