It doesn't matter if you are dealing with a personal problem, ethical question or a business dilemma. The reasoning process preceding your action is the same.
You want to lose twenty pounds, buy a house or help your daughter deal with a crisis.
You stop and you think.
What has experience taught me?
What can I learn from others who have faced a similar situation?
What are my present options?
What is my best option?
You try. It works or it doesn't. You calmly and quietly try again and this time with a little more experience.
You stop and you think. You learn and you adjust.
You progress and with time your persistent progression leads you to success. This is the Action Principles®.
