Space as a state of mind is a luxury.

It is sometimes given when not wanted, yet it is also fought for. Snap decisions are not always logically made but allowing your mind to fester in thoughts, hours upon days and so on... That's just time and energy wasted. Even though it's true that the hasty decision made can be the wrong one, and repeating a situation over again to get it right may look and feel like wasted time and energy. But at least in failure there is room to learn.
