Gain clarity on situations by adding distance before deciding


  1. Think about your decision in different time frames.
    How will you feel about it 10 minutes from now? How about ten months from now? How about ten years from now? 
  2. Think about what a clear-eyed role model would do.
    With one question—“What would my successors do?”—you can manage to add some distance to the decision. 
  3. Look at your situation from an observer’s perspective.
    What would you tell your best friend to do in this situation?
