A small decision in hurry might be the worst decision of their life. Therefore, one should be very careful while taking decisions.
The simplest reason why one should always think, understand then act is to avoid ‘regret‘.
Regret is something people never want to feel but it is something everyone goes through at some point
What’s the reason behind feeling regret? The reason is that people don’t think before doing something and the solution is that people must think, understand then only they should take any action.
Suppose you’re in exam hall and giving your annual exams. In the question paper a question comes ‘ANSWER THE FOLLOWING…’ and you just read till answer the following and start answering all the questions. After submitting your paper you decide to discuss it with your friend and to your surprise, that full question was ‘ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS’ (Any 3). And poor you did all the 8 questions! Wasn’t it a waste of time?
So, don’t promise when you’re happy. Don’t reply when you are angry. Don’t decide when you’re sad.
