Part 1…I am impulsive…does that make me a bad person?

There are sometimes in life when being impulsive works for you. Maybe you have a wonderful experience you never would have had if you had waited for the rain to stop…or perhaps you meet someone special because you just got right up from your seat and introduced yourself…or maybe you have a big business win because you went with your gut when all the signs were pointing in a different direction. Maybe the inspiration hits and you stop what you were doing and paint a masterpiece.

Sometimes being impulsive just works out…but sometimes it doesn’t.


Sometimes when you squeeze the toothpaste from the middle you lose half the tube down the drain…sometimes you have to spend $4000 to get the $1000 car you bought in a hurry, to run at all. Sometimes that “thing” that you couldn’t live without in the moment, ends up forcing you into a decision you should never have had to make in the first place. Sometimes a bad investment with your time creates an unintended consequence and false priority.


As an impulsive person…which I can be…scratch that…which I am…I often find myself at the intersection of risk and reward without my glasses.

Sometimes I have simply forgotten my glasses…and sometimes…I have left them home on purpose.

Stay tuned for part 2…I have to go…I just saw something shiny..
