I receive several daily email pieces with quotes and some of them come at
the perfect time and say the perfect thing and I find that simply amazing. The
quote above came just in time because I had been thinking for several months
about some changes that I felt needed to come about, but they weren't pleasant
to deal with. This fact caused me to think more and more to try to make sure
that I wasn't acting prematurely or without good reason, or in making
changes more than need be.
I'm sure we all want to make the best decisions possible and often as a
result may tend to think on them longer than is really necessary. I do that on
significant changes and I know it all works out, but sometimes I think I could
certainly be quicker at the task. But, I've also learned that it is what it is
and it comes when it comes and that is okay and needs to be okay. I certainly
don't want to look backward in regret of having not decided soon enough, so by
accepting it for what it is, that takes the heat off.
As it was, this quote reminded me that there is a time for thinking and a
time for doing. So I elaborated and calculated, considered and weighed, made
peace with my potential decision, then I stopped thinking and acted immediately.
It still wasn't pleasant, but I believe it to be the best course of action for
the whole. That's enough. It doesn't need to be more.
