It’s a good idea to think before we leap.  While we might be tempted to jump into all kinds of discussions and situations, premature jumps tend to lead to “If only” thoughts like…if only I did that (or didn’t do it) or if only I considered just a moment longer.   

By taking the time to think, we build our self-respect because we prove to ourselves that we are in control of our emotions. Also? We gain respect from others as we are perceived as a doer, not a dabbler or even an instigator!

PS: On that note?  I have a confession! There is no way I’m going to complete 40 books this year! I’ll be real happy if I finish 6! But the 4 I have completed? I’m very happy with!
