PRUDENCE

Showing deliberate thought for the consequences of one's actions. It is an example of resisting the impulse to satisfy short-term pleasure by sacrificing a long-term goal.

PRUDENCE: "Making sure he had more than enough money to buy the tickets before going to the concert was a sign of prudence on his part."
