Daily Steps In Self Mastery – Day 7: Deliberateness
Today I will carefully weigh facts and arguments: think deeply; try to reach correct and mature judgements; reflect much; look before I leap; avoid hasty conclusions; take all the time necessary; think and speak deliberately.
Meditate upon the following:
- Think before you speak.
- Premeditation saves one from mistakes
- To weigh well is to do well.
- Foresight is better than afterthought.
- Haste makes waste.
Power can do by gentleness that which violence fails to accomplish; and calmness best enforces the imperial mandate. ~Claudianus.
