Mini-post: The first step to disaster...

The first step to sure disaster in just about any situation is acting when everyone is saying, "We have to do something! Now!"

In desperation, the something you tend to do is the first thing that comes to mind or that appears to be easiest to accomplish. Most often, this is exactly the wrong thing to do and only generates more chaos and confusion.

The antidote to disaster?

Wait until you don't have to do anything.

Then choose to do the right thing, the right way, at the right time, for the right reasons.

Thoughtful action trumps thoughtless reaction every time.
