Look before you leap

If you don't you might end up "jumping from the frying pan into the fire". This is advice to be cautious and think first before taking major decisions. It contrasts with "he who hesitates is lost" and shows that in some cases you just can't win - ponder for too long and the bolder person grabs the prize but it might prove to be a booby prize that the timid person avoids.
