HABIT OF MIND
“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
People who are able to manage their impulsivity will take the time to consider alternatives, gather information and come to a considered conclusion. They are able to set goals, prioritize and keep their plans on track.
“The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven’t thought of yet.” ~Ann Landers
