Thought and action the two extremes on the acheivment continuum. American sosiety has been going off balance more and more towards the action extreme. There is a prevaling attitude of "dont just stand there, do something". But is this really beneficial? Does it lead to the kind of acheivment we trully desire? Does it lead to poor coices? Or is action really better then thought.

Winston Churchill said the oposite "dont just do something, stand there and think for a while".

So i was wondering what you all think about this. which extreme do you tend to lean towards? Which do you think is more important? Dont say balance is key, that is aparent, but i want to know which you see as more key thought or action.
