Calculated movements

Quote of the day:         “….It is clear that fortune will let herself be won by (those) who are impetuous rather than by those who step cautiously.”       -Niccolo Machiavelli
"Being cautious can have you doing the same thing your entire life."
Impetuous; moving forcefully or rapidly. An impetuous flow of water. According to Machiavelli these actions were favorable in obtaining fortune then being cautious. Being cautious can have you doing the same thing your entire life. For some that is preferable, however the world is much different now than the days of: go to college, get a degree, find an employer, and retire. With your carefully crafted career moves you must be impetuous. Seize new and better opportunities, and carve out more responsibility for yourself.
"Let them, they are being cautions spectators."
Do you want to make it? Do you want success, more pay, more responsibility and more choices? Then throw most of caution to the wind. Caution can be useful to you, only to the extent that it does not paralyze your moves. Caution should be used to investigate new opportunities. When it comes down to making decisions, be quick and forceful with an iron fist. In life you will situate yourself into responsibilities like children, spouse, financial obligations, ECT. Remember this: your primary responsibility is to yourself. Some may see your outward behavior and speak out against you. Let them, they are being cautions spectators. In the meantime you will be making calculated movements.
