Spontaneity is supposedly a sign of an active and impulsive mind where the mind doesn’t allow thinking but act.
Thinking about the possible outcomes and then acting judiciously, consciously is one way of dealing with things and the other way is to just let things take its course.
Which is a better option to go for?
Spontaneity obviously involves greater risk and uncertainty whereas weighing the pros and cons of your actions and then acting is a safer option at least you save yourself from obvious blunders.
We have been programmed to think and then act wisely right from our childhood.
1. Follow your time table and study! (And of course most of us managed to score decent marks)
2. Follow the trend and opt for subjects! (And hence most of us opted for what others were going for)
3. Follow the companies and apply for the best one.
Crux: Follow the safest path and make sure you don’t make mistakes. Invest time in thinking and then join the race. Make sure somebody has already taken that path and it sure has greater possibility of taking you to your coveted destination.
Spontaneity: Follow your heart and just do it! Take a leap of faith in yourself and go for it. Feel that rush. Allow yourself to commit mistakes and if things go wrong feel Bad for it. Negative feelings are just overhyped don’t worry! Invest time in doing and if you don’t reach your destination at least you will know you can start on your own as well and don’t need to always follow others.
Sometimes Spontaneity is good! :-)
