How Not to Make Bad Decisions

I like to say that I make stupid decisions, but if I make a bad decision, then I am in trouble. Stupid decisions are just decisions that I probably would not have made if I knew more about the outcome. Those are no big deal because it is hard to predict outcomes. However, bad decisions are ones that if I would have thought through in the moment, I probably would not have made. They are the ones that if I would have thought about for 5 more minutes, I would have not made. One very good way I have found to avoid them is to realize when I am emotionally compromised.
