Imagine if you were the person or group on the "receiving end" of your decision. How would you like to be treated? Would you like it? Would you think it was fair? What would you feel toward you? What would YOU think would be the best decision? Imagining/seeing both sides, affirming both can greatly expand # of options, viewpoints, ideas for more choices, compromises, synergy, confidence, common ground, even wisdom. Leadership skills.
Imagine a solution you could create with empathy, with identification with the recipient or person(s) affected. What if this was family? What would make them feel they were honored and treated fairly, with wisdom? (Think "Yoda.") What solution would others think is a fair, "break-through, quantum leap" solution? A decision that seems to reflect good, empathetic, ethical, even inspiring deliberation? If you've done your best to arrive at a decision in this way, it's a life choice you can take with you.
Go another step: Think if this a good choice for sustainable planet? Your own and others' health? Long-term larger positive relationship networks?
