Do not yield to impulse. It is always better to look before you leap—to opt on the side of caution. You possess an inner cautionary voice: the trait of being attentive to possible threat, risk, or danger. It’s both an innate and learned survival mechanism—listen to it; heed it. Inform yourself of the risks and benefits of your potential actions—the ‘what ifs.’
Your cautiousness will result in fewer failures than recklessness.
