Acting impulsively causes errors and brings about many negative consequences. Before making an important decision, think the matter over carefully and do all you can to clarify which approach is the wisest.
Is there anything that might be considered "acting impulsively" that you are involved in right now? If so, stop and rethink your actions. And the next time you encounter such a situation, think carefully and comprehensively.
