Yes, fools often rush in before the time is right. There is a time and a place to move quickly and there is great knowledge to have learned to know for certain when that will be. The timing of our actions from our learned experiences are just as important as determining the best actions to take. Now is not always the best time to proceed.
Caution isn’t a fear to act, but rather a deeper intelligence for when precisely to act for the best result. Caution entails a clear discernment of presenting realities to know with more certainty when you would begin.
Measure twice and cut once. Knowing when to act is just as important as what actions you will take. Each new and unique opportunity requires the caution to know what, how and when you will have the greatest opportunity for success. With caution, you’ll come to know what not to do, as well as what to do and when.
“Caution is the eldest child of wisdom.” — Victor Hugo —
