a tickle of words to create smiles

Which One?

What expression do you identify more with: “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”; or, “only fools rush in?” Are you one that looks before you leap, or do you feel those who hesitate is lost? Do you plan for the future or do you live for today? Do you feel too many cooks spoil the broth? Or, do you feel many hands make light work?

There are many conflicting sayings and expressions that many identify with depending on the circumstances. It truly depends on the situation for most. Sometimes I feel I should take the risk and venture into certain things; other times I feel it would be foolish to rush into it. Sometimes I prefer teamwork, especially during projects that need input, brainstorming and creativity flow; and, other times, I prefer to work independently especially when I have a deadline to meet and time becomes a factor.

With all the social styles and personality generalities that are out there, most of us are a blending of them. By taking the time to ask yourself why you feel or act a certain way will give you an insight and new perspective into yourself. How do you check-in with yourself? How do you weigh your choices? Or, do you simply act now and ask questions later? Does it depend on the situation? Do you act differently at work than at a social gathering? Food for thought, maybe? I invite you to be patient with yourself and with others as each of us value things differently and it will vary from one situation to another.
