I recently wrote on the oft-neglected discipline of thinking and how we need to set aside specific time to invest in our mental creativity. I firmly believe in this truth, but also find that we can end up
spending so much time in thought that we neglect our need for action. It's a reflection of our detrimental habit of overemphasizing one end of the decision making "see-saw" to the point of abandoning other equally important disciplines. It's a fine balancing act that involves spending adequate time creatively and carefully thinking things through and then pulling the trigger on a plan of action to bring them into fruition. It's a synergistic relationship that creates positive momentum and brings enjoyment to the journey.

Neither step is necessarily more important than the other, but ignoring either step will leave you flat on the ground or stuck in the air desperate for movement.
