If you are passionate, you will realize if you really are passionate about something if you embrace the ups and downs of what you are positive about. When you are passionate, the decision is often very biased towards your wants and disregarding what is practical. This is the perfect ground to develop your damage control skills.
If you can accept the fact that there are no good or bad decisions in life, then you are on your way to developing damage control further. When you do not regret a decision you make and allow yourself to live and deal with the present, then you have a chance to further level-up your talents at managing and making things better for yourself.
First, when you have a confusing decision in your life, do not try to analyse or think about the facts too much. Make a decision and stick by it regardless of its consequences on you.
Then, if you find something wrong or you feel something is off about the decision, analyse the results of your decision and list down the positive aspects of the decision you made. Once you know what you can enjoy, you could also analyse what could be best for everyone in your decision.
Damage control is ensuring that everyone affected in your decision also sees the bright side of your decision, including the ones you deprived in making the decision. It is a form of improvisation that helps you have a peace of mind and encourages you to grow and improve as a person.
