Don't Be Impulsive, It Can Be Counterproductive

I was having a deep and informative conversation with a very good and wise friend of mine.  He said a few things that really made me think.  Now, this friend I consider my secret weapon because his intelligence and wisdom goes far beyond the charm he exudes.  We were discussing human behavior in regards to ulterior motives.  After a misfortunate situation or tragedy happens in our life, the immediate actions we take and the choices we make are very sensitive and vulnerable.  

don't be impulsive it can be counterproductive

Impulsive behavior can lead us into a lot of things other than debt and disappointment.  Immediate reaction on a situation without carefully thinking of the results, and or repercussions of those actions, can worsen the outcome.  Responding impulsively to a negative situation could communicate things that you really don’t want communicated.  Whether or not your impulsive behavior was negative or positive, the lack of thoroughly examining the intent and purpose could be more of a hindrance than a help.

Counterproductive is hindering the achievement of a set goal or purpose.  Impulsive behavior can be counterproductive if we don’t measure our behavior.  Remember to always think before you act.   Make sure the choices you make are ones that will help you serve your purpose and not hinder your growth or weaken your strength.  Remember, for every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction. 

Are the decision and choices you make impulsive?  Are you mindful to avoid being counterproductive?
