THINK ONCE AGAIN BEFORE TAKING ACTIONS IN A HURRY

Standard

Some persons appear to be always in a hurry. They believe in doing, whether it results in making or breaking. Many times actions taken in a hurry have resulted in serious problems.  Responding in a hurry by clicking on a web site link received in an e mail is dangerous.  Serious consequences are caused when seemingly exactly same but slightly different links are clicked by us in a hurry, especially when providing information, financial matters, transfer of funds and credit card numbers are involved. Similarly just before clicking on “send “ button in a hurry, especially while sending e mail to a new e mail ID, if we do not recheck the e mail ID especially the full stop, hyphen and underscore etc., the e mail may bounce back. Besides this, we should recheck the text of the e mail as well. When we are sick, we may get into more problems, if in a hurry, we take medicines lying in the house, even without rechecking the date of expiry of the medicines. If the foil containing the medicine does not have clear date of expiry, it is better not to take it. Doctors examining patients and writing prescriptions there for in hurry, may lead to serious problems, instead of curing.  Sometimes even the pharmacists are unable to read the prescriptions correctly.  There may be pressure of large number of patients, but we can’t ignore aspects of their health. If we use eye drops in a hurry, without rechecking and confirming once again that drops being used are the correct eye drops, it will create havoc with the eyes. Sometimes we have similar looking bottles in the house. We must check the date of expiry and also note the date when the bottle of eye drops is opened and we must not use it beyond one month from the date of opening it. While writing the answer books in the examination, if we write many pages, but all in a hurry with poor handwriting and leave no time for rechecking the answers given, before actually handing over to the invigilator, the result is obvious. On the other hand, a student who writes legibly, to the point and rechecks in the last 10-15 minutes gets more marks. One person wanted to hurriedly check the approximate quantity of petrol in his scooter, in the evening hours. There was no fuel gauge but he could have ascertained it by using a dip stick in the tank or a torch, but it occurred to him to use a lighted match stick. However on a second thought, having realized that petrol is highly inflammable, he abandoned the idea just on the nick of the moment.  Otherwise he would have been badly injured and the scooter damaged. Therefore, we must always give a second thought to our actions and seek mental confirmation again, to do the things as proposed earlier. According to a proverb, only a devil works in a hurry. (Jaldi ka kaam shaitan ka).
