Daily Lift #208

Deliberate Before Acting

The fool acts impulsively. He does whatever he thinks of doing and he does not listen to what anyone else has to say.

The wise person, however, does not rely only on his own judgment. Rather, he thinks the matter through thoroughly, and consults other wise people before taking action.

Avoid doing things impulsively that you might regret. Practice the art of "thinking." It's habit forming and enjoyable!

(see Vilna Gaon - Proverbs 12:15; Rabbi Pliskin - "Consulting the Wise")
