At times the best action to take is no action. I had two separate events in the past few days where I refrained from saying something when I originally thought I would. Both situations have turned out just fine; perhaps even better than I had hoped. What has helped me is to learn to do something I call "letting it set." I have learned that I make better decisions if, instead of rushing into saying or doing something, I just back off a bit or "let it set." This gives me time to think out my decisions. It also allows outside events to unfold so that the direction I need to take becomes crystal clear. Sometimes taking no action (an action in and of itself) can be more productive than taking action.
