Because there is great wisdom in sleeping on a decision/project/letter/conversation, it's an oft-forgotten tactic in the pursuit of a life filled with as few regrettable moments as possible. But by developing a habit of being quiet, a habit of easy precision, then a generous use of time eventually becomes the default.
Becoming overstimulated, and reacting to it, is often avoidable. When it isn't, this practice of quiet neutrality, of studying the game board before the piece is moved, wisdom, only groped for in the past, becomes easily and effortlessly channeled.
Well. More often than not, anyway.
