well! for me when I'm having that difficulty, i tend to switch on alternative solutions that i made up before i decide what to do. i always make more than just one decision making strategy in order to make myself sure if i am really doing or making myself on the right track. you should consider putting yourself in situations that you think you don't have a way out and what you should do is find it no matter what.
hope this could help with your question. c",?
