The moment you realize something,is the exact moment that you should react to it.Do you agree?
Some people react slowly,some pass it off as a passing fad,some don't act to a situation at all,and some can't wait to attend to it and solve the matter at hand.Do you have good reaction?
I think I generally react by taking time to think about it, I have never been a very spontaneous person, preferring to think things through.
It depends on the situation. For example, if I'm coaching a soccer game, and I see that my team isn't playing as good as usual, I will wait and watch the players play a few lines. Then, after assessing their abilities that night, I would change the lines so that it would be more balanced and beneficial to individual player so that they would play cohesively as a team. In this case, I would analyze and then make a decision.
On the other hand, if a stranger dropped in front of me, and displayed symptoms of distress such as a heart attack or seizure, I would not hesitate to call 911 and perform the necessary medical procedure(s) to aid in prolonging/saving a life. In this case, I would act immediately as soon as I realize what is happening.
I think reacting immediately can be a mistake depending on the situation. I believe giving things some thought before reacting can be very beneficial--and of course I am not talking about an emergency situation where time is of the essence.
I like to face up to situations and get them taken care of, but I never act without thinking--that can get a person in trouble very quickly.
I usually take around 1 minute to process the action I need to take. Some cases, it can be a quick second when comes to danger. While other cases require longer to justify whether or not there is a consequence to the decision made.
Overall, I am pretty quick to decide when encountering tight situation where right decision needs to be made.
Reacting through instinct is good if you trust yourself and you have a lot of years of experience in life...otherwise it could be a disaster...without thinking it through first... maybe you will need only a few minutes - but ..."Only Fools Rush In...."
I'd agree to some point with reacting immediately, but it depends on what the situation or scenario is. So if it was that I had a inspiration for a new HUB, that could potentially make it big then I'd like to act on it instantly at least even just write down the thought process.
But if it is something more involved like taking out a car insurance then I'd think about and find the cheapest and take my time selecting the insurance company.
Sometimes when I don't react right away, then that
moment is gone and then it's difficult to take it back.
I think is depends upon the situation that I confront on
whether I need to react quickly or not. Some things take
time to think through, which can be beneficial, but I know
there are moments I react instantly without a thought at all.
Depending on the issue at times I may react right away and very often I'll need to ponder what is best to say.
Yes, I think that I do...........just do what needs to be done NOW and do not panic!
Just jump in and do it!
I owned and ran my own security business for 18 years. You learn to assess the situation very quickly and react as trained. I, myself, have been in situations where you had no time to think but react. I have come out with black eyes and bruised ribs etc because I have the philosophy of not hitting back unless absolutely necessary. I (being only 5 foot 3 inches) had to hold a Huge bloke who was well over 6 foot 5 inches from entering a night club. He threw many punches at me, until I pushed him and held him against a steel staircase. It took 6 police officers to subdue him and get him into the back of the Police Vehicle.
Needless to say, I did not have to appear in court as he pleaded guilty.
I always see myself as jumping in to help ANYONE who needs help at ANYTIME. I don't even think twice about it. I do it before I even know what is happening.
Thank goodness I know how to handle myself.
I would never ever hesitate to help someone in need, no matter what the situation may be. We may be out numbered, but bring it on. You MUST have an air of authority about you to do this however, because if you feel or show fear at anytime you are done for. Sorry to be so harsh.
No. only if the importance of it overrides other tasks. If I realised that I had forgotten to turn off the light when leaving the house and had a job interview I wouls choosethe most important
I think it really depends on each situation. Some things should not be acted upon e.g being suspicious of someone committing a crime against you but not yet having enough evidence to convict them.
yea, i agree. this is true since if you wait there will be something else on the way to take your focus. That's why having a storeroom isn't a good decision
Certailny not. In Greece we say " You have 2 ears and one mouth, use them that way"

If you knew the exact moment you were going to die, what would your last words be?To whom would you say them? We should always consider our words, as we never know which ones will be our last.

When did you know, the exact moment, a relationship was dead - that you had fallen out of love?I read somewhere once that there is a moment - an exact second - you know when the relationship you've treasured is over and you've fallen out of love. When was it for you - how did you handle it?

When you cook do you use exact measurements or do you "eyeball it"I'm really bad about using measuring cups/spoons. Cooking comes naturally to me and I rarely if ever follow a recipe as is and I almost always just add ingredients by looking at them. How about you? Do you cook...
