Think well, go Dan


Literally: ripen – thought – sever – go

Alternately: Thinking over a matter fully and carefully, and then taking decisive action. Instead of jumping the gun with rash action or dithering in eternal indecision, taking the best of both worlds. Something a chief executive is supposed to be capable of.

Notes: This compound is related to 思慮分別, with increased emphasis on the decisive follow-through that follows the deep and thorough thought.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
