Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.

Think before

When there’s something that must be done, it’s important to act quickly. Yet it’s also important to think before you act.

Action is what makes things happen. Thinking is what makes those actions appropriate and effective.

A thoughtful response will take you much further than a mindless reaction. A thoughtful response will put the power of positive purpose into what you do.

It’s great when you’re anxious to take action. Remember to also take a moment to put the power of thought and intention behind your action.

Think, consider, and then act. You’ll avoid regrets and produce positive, valuable results.

Think before you go. And where you’ll end up is just where you intended to be.

— Ralph Marston
