When things go wrong, sometimes the best thing to do, is do nothing at all and see how things play out.

Bad decision-making is usually a result of making rash decisions, under pressure and when you’re highly charged with emotion. This is not a good time to be making decisions.

Give yourself some space and time to think things through, even get someone else’s view, to try to get a different perspective.

I like to use the decision matrix to help me think choices through in a rational way, again, if you are finding it difficult to look at the issue objectively, get some assistance from someone you trust to help you with it.

But coming back to the initial point, sometimes the best decision is to do nothing, just let it be, and see how things progress. Sometimes things sort themselves out, without any intervention.

This is not to say you should bury your head in the sand and pretend it isn’t happening, hoping it will go away, this would be a disempowering coping strategy.

Instead, understand that doing nothing will always be one of your choices and not making a knee jerk reaction is nearly always a good idea.
