    Should We "Just Go With It" or "Think and Then React"?

    It depends on what the "it" is. Certain things we must go with. Such as law and work. Other things, like animal rights, human rights, ect. should be thought over and reacted upon.

    It depends on what is the circumstance, and what would be the best course of action. When it comes to anything, it can go either way, but usually, its best to think things though. Except when it comes to love, where you should always just go with it, because the best things are spontaneous and natural. smile

    Sure think & think again, otherwise, we will lose our mind by stop using it frequently.
    Sure, God give us mind to use & not to lose.
    Also God save us by reacting unconsciously, when we are in a risk (like pulling your hand ,without even thinking, when you touch something hot for example).

    So when mind is needed, use it, other wise you try to be unconscious when you are really conscious.

    It depends on what it is..if it is some thing very simple like going to the gym then just go with it.  On the other hand if it is something a little  more complicated like getting married then think and think again and again....:-)

    I believe everything should be process with our brains before taking action.

    That is why I have learnt in school about - Look before you leap.

    Most of the time when you just do it without thinking, it can result unforeseen disaster when it is a mistake. I always believe that we can take a quick second decision to process and analyze before jumping into the action.

    It is better safe than sorry.

    A situation that I had witnessed in the past that we saw someone was drowning and a quick decision from a person jumped into the sea to rescue the person while the rest of the people were watching. When asked why the rest did not jumped into the water to rescue, it was answered that none of them knew how to swim. Only that person who jumped into the water and saved that person knew as he had learnt from survival swimming training.

    From that lesson, I know that we need to process through our brains for every action we take in order to avoid disaster. If we do not know how to swim and jump into the water trying to save that person, it will result in 2 deaths.

    Just go with it if you might have fun in a safe manner     Think and then React if it may harm someone physically or emotionally, put you in a financial blunder or if its not the smartest idea!

    As tempting as just going for it seems...there are always consequences for ones it heartbreak...incarceration...and in the case of skydiving...imminent death. With a lifetime of experience "Just going with it" I can honestly say that I've slowed down to think before I act. It's working so far!
