“三思而后行,再,斯可矣” Think Before You Act

在快节奏的现代生活中,我们经常会遇到需要迅速作出决定的情况。但孔子曰:“三思而后行”。意思是在做出决策前,应该多方面思考和权衡利弊。这提醒我们,在决定重要事情前要多加思考。这种思想不仅适用于古人的社会,同样适用于今天。例如,无论是职场决策、投资选择还是人际交往,冲动往往会给我们带来不可预见的后果。

当然,这也并不意味着在每个决策上都犹豫不决。关键是要区分何时需要快速决定,何时需要深思熟虑。我们应该遵循”中庸之道“,既不过多犹豫,又保证一定的思考,无论在做事还是做决策中都不忘自己最初的目的。这样,我们才能在尽量避免错误的同时作出更好的决定。


In our fast-paced modern life, we often encounter situations where we need to make quick decisions. But Confucius said: "Think twice before you act." This means that before making a decision, you should think about and weigh the pros and cons from many aspects. This reminds us to think more before deciding on important things. This idea is not only applicable to ancient society, but also applies to today. For example, whether it is workplace decisions, investment choices, or interpersonal interactions, impulsivity often brings us unforeseen consequences.

Of course, this doesn’t mean hesitating on every decision. The key is to distinguish when a quick decision is required and when it requires careful consideration. We should follow the "golden mean", without too much hesitation, but also ensure a certain amount of thinking, and never forget our original purpose whether we are doing things or making decisions. This way, we can make better decisions while minimizing mistakes.
