In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing

Things to Think About

By Pepper de Callier

“In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.” - Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States

This is a wonderful quote to remember for those times we all agonize over what to do—left, right, up, down, stop, go, yes, no, etc. It also reminds me that few things in life are irreversible and, even if we do make the wrong decision, many times it’s a matter of fine-tuning to get to the right one. Once we get past the inertia of doing nothing, we set the solution in motion.  Think of this the next time you’re feeling stuck and know that the difference between you and the majority of other people is that you chose to act, rather than be acted upon.

Good luck on your journey.

Till next time…
