Apply Consequential Thinking is about taking pause to think through the potential result of your behaviors before you actually act on them. When you do this well, you consider how a particular decision impacts others, aligns to your goals, or moves you in the desired direction. You also consider the costs to yourself and others, the pros and the cons.
Every action sends a message, good or bad. Whether you realize it or not, people are looking to you. Your kids, your friends, family, coworkers, boss, etc. What are they seeing? Are you being a good role model in how to respond to your thoughts and feelings?
