“Sleep on it”

The Daily Prompt:

What’s the most crazy, outrageously impulsive thing you’ve ever done? If you’ve never succumbed to temptation, dream a little. If you gave yourself permission to go a little crazy, what would you do?

By nature, I am quite impulsive, but I realised a few years back that the biggest mistakes I’ve made, have been those impulsive choices.  So now, when I can handle it, I leave things, and I let the thoughts wash over me.  In the process of teaching myself to stop being so impulsive, I also learnt the true meaning of the idiom “Sleep on it.”
So no, even if I have the urge, I wont even entertain the thought of doing something on impulse.  Small things like purchasing something small and unplanned for is ok, but not the big things.

  2. I think if one thinks over it and not rush to make a decision then one can act more rationally. I’m sure at times all of us have acted on impulse. Something to work on as you say, Michelle. 🙂

  4. I an not usually impulsive, but when my book was published, I made a vow to say yes to every opportunity to share and/or market the book. It led me to a lot of amazing experiences that I would’ve missed if I spend 2 seconds thinking about it. Sometimes, impulse is good.
