Give yourself time to think


  1. Think before acting.
    Seneca and the Stoics made a clear distinction between thoughts and behavior. A person who does not think before acting will make bad decisions, which he will regret. 
  2. The next time you face a problem, take a break and ask yourself what would be the best way to solve it.
    Just wait a few days before analyzing the problem. Make a decision only when you are calm.
