Practice slow thinking


  1. Pause before replying.
    When someone asks you something or you need to solve a problem, don't jump in with an answer right away. Give yourself a little time to think about it. This will enable you to make better responses as you're not relying on what you're feeling at the moment.
  2. Accept uncertainty.
    Sometimes, you won't have all the answers to the problem you need to solve - and that's totally fine. If you're not sure about something, say so. It's better to admit you don't know and try to learn more. This honesty can lead to a better understanding of the problem at hand. And it may even lead to personal growth.
  3. Learn to be patient when deciding slowly.
    Get used to taking your time when deciding something. Instead of making quick choices, think about them for a while. This can help you see things you might have missed at first and come up with better decisions.
  4. Trust your own judgment.
    What you think about your own ideas is more important than what others think about how smart you are. Trust your own judgment. Remember, your opinion about your decisions matters more than anyone else's.
