An Oxford dictionary describes
Prudent means Acting with or showing care and thought for the future.
Recently, I wrote a blog post about power of words and the importance of words that has potential to reshape our life the way we wanted to be. If you like to keep thinking about your future and definite purpose of it then you must give it a go, it’s quite interesting with few stories. It touches upon prudence of life. Just to give you little preview:
Look at your life.
Where are you now compared to where you could be?
In his book, The Little Minister, J. M. Barrie says,
“The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another, and his humblest hour is when he compares the volume as it is with what he vowed to make it.”
What should you have started last week, last month, or even last year?
Where would you be if you had started last week?
Where would you be if you had started last month?
Where would you be if you had started last year?
Where would you be if you had started 5 years ago?
These thoughts may be somewhat depressing, but hiding from them isn’t going to help. The brutal truth is what you must face if you’re serious about making your future better than your past.
Life is all about taking chances. It’s all about these difficult decision which add up to greatness. And there are times when you have to challenge greatness on the face of it.
Your current position in life is a reflection of your previous desires, planning, and choices. If you want a better future, you’ll need to make some immediate and powerful changes and choices right now.
