When you have an important question, but no one available to ask it to, ask yourself: "If I were to ask an expert for advice, what would he tell me?"
Imagining what someone without bias would say, helps you make wiser decisions. This technique will help you access your latent critical thinking ability. In this way, you can have a personal advisor with you at all times!
(Chochmah U'mussar, vol.1, p.21; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.265)
