Daily Steps In Self Mastery – Day 7: Deliberateness

Adjective; characterized by deliberation or cautious consideration; careful orslow in deciding

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.

My Exercise:

Meditate upon the following:

  1. Think before you speak.
  2. Premeditation saves one from mistakes
  3. To weigh well is to do well.
  4. Foresight is better than afterthought.
  5. Haste makes waste.

Power can do by gentleness that which violence fails to accomplish; and calmness best enforces the imperial mandate. ~Claudianus.
