Yup, I’ll admit it. I’m an impulsive person.

But as an admittedly impulsive person, I know we get a bad rap.
You don’t have to search too hard to find psychology textbooks saying negative things about being impulsive, or success gurus warning against it.

Yes, I know. We’re constantly cautioned against being impulsive throughout our lives by well meaning individuals, and it may make sense for a whole lot of people.
