Creating Psychological Distance

In the 16th century, the Spanish priest and theologian Ignatius of Loyola suggested three ways you can achieve more psychological distance from a difficult decision:

  • by letting go of your preferred option momentarily, to consider all options objectively (later in the Guide I show a way to do this);
  • by imagining that you are advising a friend making the same decision; and
  • last but not least, by imagining reflecting from your deathbed on the same decision, years (hopefully many decades!) later.
