When you are given a decision, don't feel compel to have to answer immediately, unless stated. Sometimes we are placed into situations where there seem to be no other answer but the one that first pops up in your mind. To every problem there is a solution, but before you get to the solution you must first understand the problem. Take the time out to think before you act on it.
Even in a situation where the odds seem against you, stop, breathe, and take a step back. Don't be afraid to take your time to make an important decision. The decisions you make today, will affect your ways of tomorrow. Life has a way of handing out problems, but it also provide resources to resolve them. Avoid making swift and premature decisions which in return may create more problems.
If you find yourself in a situation where an immediate decision is requested, stop, breathe, and take a step back. This time closing the gap of time as to avoid being indecisive.
A good doctor doesn't give a prescription with out first giving a diagnosis. Don't make a decision without understanding the effects.
