Permanent Decisions

Don't make any permanent decisions when you are overcome with temporary emotion. Make it a principle to not respond while you are upset, angry or depressed. Ask for time to think it over and calm yourself down. For major decisions ask for 48 hours, if possible. When responding in writing while in affect, wait to send the mail for at least 12 hours, to give you time to sleep on it and review it, to see that you still agree with the words, before you send it.
