Start approaching situations like a poker player. Let’s say you are thinking about a major life-changing decision. You need to think more objectively and rationally while evaluating. By keeping in mind the people involved, consequences and the probabilities of what would happen if the outcome is not what you expected will . By doing this, the returns of each scenario will be reflected in a long term of fulfillment of analyzing everything beforehand.
