This article explores the benefits that come with the use of thoughtful action along with how quick-thinking is perceived and rewarded.
When people are confronted with adversity, opportunity or both, they often react quickly – with the intention of dealing with the situation rapidly and moving forward. These reflexively gut-driven responses are often rewarded by our culture, which praises the “fast-acting-do-er” who “gets the job done” or “puts out fires.”
Trouble is, rapid action can often result in adverse outcomes.
- Quick responses to problems and opportunities don’t always lead to good results.
- Thoughtful action rooted in your goals and in deep insights into a situation can create much better outcomes.
- Accept your emotional reactions to big-moment situations – but don’t let them drive your decisions.
