Cautiousness (vs. rashness)
Knowing the importance of right timing in accomplishing right actions
To practice Cautiousness I will:
- think before I act
- follow safety rules
- ask permission
- talk at the right time
- look out for danger
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.
