Caution Schmaution

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Look before you leap. I think we've all heard that saying umpteen times. It's supposed to remind us to be cautious before taking a risk. But then there's "throw caution to the wind," which is pretty much the exact opposite. So, which one is right?

I'm a cautious person by nature. I like to know the who, what, when, where, why and all possible outcomes before I do anything. It can be exhausting because I over think and over analyze things to death. Caution also gets me stuck in a rut, afraid to move forward.

I've still been struggling with determining whether I'm thinker or a do-er. Today, I got tired of being stuck in a rut. I decided to be a do-er. I ignored caution altogether and jumped in feet first. Let's hope I stick the landing.

More to come...
