How far do you think things through before you act on something new? (I didn't intend for that to rhyme.)
Does thinking ahead cause you to miss out on something wonderful - becuase you were afriad? Or save you from something terrible - you think?
No matter which you choose and what the outcome is, you'll never know how it would have turned out if you'd chosen to blindly forge ahead and roll with whatever comes at you.
I'll admit that some things in life I think so long about that I never actually make a move one way or the other... and some things go straight from my eyes/ears/heart to me moving forward without it ever even taking a short stop in my brain.
