Think before you act.....

These are the days of fast and busy life,
With no time to think or dream,
Life is fully action packed,
Getting less time to prepare or plan.
Often we act up on impulses,
or as per other's suggestions or advices,
But we should know that we have a mind,
Conscious, and it knows well,
To disciminate between good and bad,
That which is to be done or not,
But we always act up on impulses,
As we all feel, we don't have time.
I say it is always imperative,
To think a little before we act,
Just act and don't bother about result,
Result may be good or bad,
it may be a success or failure,
But the fact remains that,
You acted confident as per your conscience,
And also failure will give you a chance,
To learn,analyse and introspect,
Redirecting you to the correct mode.
here you may act and fail,
from failure you learn new ways,
With this learning you act again,
You will now see that you succeed.
If I coin these words together,
The old adage is formed,
' 'Think and act; Act and fail;
Fail and learn;learn and succeed''
How about this..............?
