vs. rashness

Taking time to ensure the right decision is made

or action is taken

To practice Cautiousness, I will:

  • think before I speak
  • follow safety guidelines
  • include others in decision making
  • think through possible outcomes
  • avoid unnecessary risk

    You’ve probably heard the phrases, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and “Measure twice – cut once.” In actuality, the best cautions are precautions. Being cautious is not the absence of risk and it is not being afraid. The practice of cautiousness simply requires thought before action.

    Where can you exercise more cautiousness this month?
