What process, skills, do you use to evaluate any situation so you can make a wise decision? Have you gathered all the facts that are available to you about the situation/event?
Do you look at this event/situation with clear thinking in the present moment? A similar situation may have happened in the past and you are thinking the results will be the same this time. Just because something happened in the past does not necessarily mean it will happen again this time.
