We make wiser decisions when we are grateful, for at least two reasons:
1. Gratitude requires remembering. A correct understanding of past events helps us when we face obstacles similar to those we’ve faced before.
2. Gratitude requires humility. An accurate perception of what can and can’t do helps us to define our workload effectively and to seek help, including divine assistance, when needed.
