We live in busy times. Most people have hardly any time to do anything well. Forget about thinking things through, we are expected to make hasty decision and act swiftly. As a result, people and organizations tend to leap to conclusions and make hasty decisions without careful consideration .
The careful thinker takes time to weigh evidence, reflect, and make informed decisions.
The key to making informed decisions is to find a healthy balance of reflection and action.
Why It’s Important To Pause To Reflect
Clear thinking in our modern times is a luxury. So rather than engaging their creative thinking skills, most people rely on Wikipedia, Alexa, Siri, and Google for quick answers.
When you take time to pause and reflect on your decisions, the outcome is likely holistic, ethical, and helpful in the long run.
With practice, you can get better at taking time to weigh the evidence, work through an issue, decide how to resolve it and only then take action.
This type of problem-solving is deliberate. It’s not reflexive or automatic.
The Right Time For Action
It is easy to be seduced by the idea that constant action results in success. It doesn’t.
Too much reflection results in analysis paralysis, a state of inaction. In comparison, too much action leads to running down blind alleys and having to recover from costly mistakes. Without proper reflection, action results in habits that are inflexible and ineffective in the long run.
Therefore, a healthy balance is required in your reflection and action. After taking time to reflect on a problem and deciding a necessary course of action, get to work.
Now is the time to act with deliberate firmness.
