    • Jennifer I noticed you wrote ” I find that I’m so impulsive when I’m in a rush. Oftentimes it takes even longer to complete the task because I’m jumping right in before thinking first. These strategies for managing impulsivity are really important! Have you ever been impulsive because you are working with someone who pushes you to make quick decisions? I find this challenging to slow down and think or apply some of these strategies. Any good ideas for combatting this type if impulsivity?” to describe impulsivity and I share the same feeling because this concept reminded of a proverb about a king who used to tell his servant “dress me slop that I am in hurry.” And that is exactly what your post is telling., if you want a job well done, do not act with impulsivity. Nice work Jennifer!
