When deciding whether or not you should or should not do something, consider your desired outcome.
This may sound obvious, but we are wired to respond and make decisions out of emotion, and beliefs that we have in our subconscious .
Taking time to consciously think about what actual outcome you desire, can help to focus your line of thought.
Then look at the facts that you know to be true, as well as figuring out what facts you don’t know for sure. Then logically make your best guess as to what you should do, to get your desired outcome.
