If you never let the grass grow under your feet, you always do things immediately, you don't wait or hesitate but act swiftly.

Hi,

Let me give you a sentence that shows the meaning of 'make your mind up quickly'.

I would recommend that you make your mind up now and don't let the grass grow under your feet but buy it now before the price goes up.
