Develop rapid response to every day situations, but it must be smart and centered instead of rushed and impulsive. Learn to take quick actions when it is required, it could be in an emergency or when studying for a test. Cultivate the habit of taking action quickly but never sacrificing level-headedness. The importance of taking action is not on how quickly you respond, it is on how much will your response affect the event so it would lead you to the desired outcome. The key for rapid response is preparation, you must practice consistently putting yourself in similar situations in order to develop the right mindset to respond with an emotionally balanced mind. If the response requires time, then take the necessary time to come up with the best response. Always be ready for the variables and unexpected issues.
