Essay Topic : Think like a man of action

 MBA aspirants may be asked to write essay before GD & PI. Today, you will read Essay on:  

"Think like a man of action"

Henri Bergson, a French author and philosopher, once said, “Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought”. One should always think before taking an action. When one plans to take an action, he should think of the consequences of doing so, instead of regretting later. In addition, one should convert ideas into action, instead of preaching about ideal values. Only when you “say what you mean and mean what you say” will people have faith in you and your words.

A man of action is always in an active state, solving problems, instead of staying idle. So, his energy is always flowing. When someone acts like a man of thought, it means that he does not get carried away by emotions. In fact, he analyses deeply and ensures that his actions are justifiable and aligned with the desired outcome. It is important to think and act simultaneously. If one simply thinks without taking actions, he cannot achieve anything in life. 

If Mother Teresa had spent days and months thinking of eradicating poverty in India, without going to the streets to help people, the society would not have benefitted. On the other hand, if one only acts, without thinking of an action plan, he may end up regretting from thought-less actions. Drink-driving is an activity where perpetrators do not think before acting, which leads to disastrous consequences for them and other road users. 

Hence, to lead meaningful lives, it is important to think before taking any action. By thinking, one analyses pros and cons of an action before jumping into a task. This way, his path to success becomes less bumpy. However, one should not procrastinate by thinking too much because “time and tide wait for no man”.  So, it is important to grab opportunities by thinking and acting appropriately.
